Hello, my thawing, winter warriors! How are you? Isn’t this weather gorgeous? Next September, we’ll be whining about how the same temperatures are freezing us. The only thing I see routinely during the spring thaw is all the dirt and garbage in the snow banks along the road that are finally poking their heads out. The road sprouts filth while gardens sprout hopes of food and flowers. Look for anything growing near the foundation of a building. That’s where the heat is now and where plants want to grow; usually, on the sunny side of the street.
My picture for this week’s blog features a clover in honor of St. Patrick’s Day which will take place on next Tuesday, March 17, 2015, a day before my next blog. This weekend, downtown Racine has a St. Patrick’s Day parade starting at noon on Saturday. I’m sure there will be plenty of other activities and green beer. http://www.racinedowntown.com/stpats.html I’m assuming that Señor Zanza and Junior will be there, for one reason or the other. Sorry, but green beer doesn’t do it for me. I need green herbs to really get off. Then I get rather silly. Then I fall asleep.
Next Friday, March 20, is the Spring Solstice. Yahoo! I mean, it doesn’t have the force of law behind it, but it’d be nice to say it’s springtime. It would be nice to believe that it’s springtime. It gives one hope.
I have to make up for some lost sleep time, my dears, so I’m cutting this short. Thank you to everyone who read this blog. I love my audience deeply.

Enjoy the warming weather, my friends. I think it’s curing a lot of cases of cabin fever, including mine.
