Garden Bloggers' Muse Day (a little late, again)

Garden Blogger's Muse Day
March 1, 2008

"The sun was warm but the wind was chill.
You know how it is with an April day
When the sun is out and the wind is still,
You're one month on in the middle of May.
But if you so much as dare to speak,
A cloud comes over the sunlit arch,
A wind comes off a frozen peak,
And you're two months back in the middle of M
- Robert Frost, Two Tramps in Mud Time

Actually, it was March 1st and we
were visiting the Henry Doorly Zoo
in Omaha, Nebraska.

A great weekend family outing.
