Today I spied the first crocus of the season in the front border! When I fed the cats on the porch, a robin serenaded us from the satety of an overhead branch. The air smells milder! I dried some sheets out on the clothesline and raked a few old leaves and twigs from the front yard. A friend gave me some pussywillow branches that I may take to Mom's Memorial service next week. We are hoping to make it more of a celebration in honor of her full and beautiful life, instead of a funeral, mourning her death.

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Mom certainly had beautiful Irish eyes!
