Today feels like a Downside Up and Outside In kind of day....One of those days whereby anything attempted seems out of order and not quite right. Here in New England we have been deluged with rain, teased with summer-like temperatures, and dropped back into the bellows of cold. Yet despite the schizophrenic effects of it all, the promise of this vernal season is fulfilled. Even Opening Day for the Red Sox was a triumph over the Yankees - GO SOX!!!!
Enjoy these harbingers of Spring, all displaying their loveliness IN THE MOMENT...right now.
