"For winter's rains and ruins are over,
And all the seasons of snows and sins;
The days dividing lover and lover,
The light that loses, the night that wins;
And time remembered is grief forgotten,
And frosts are slain and flowers begotten,
And in green underwood and cover
Blossom by blossom the spring begins."
A.C. (Algernon Charles) Swinburne (1837-1909), British poet, critic. Atalanta in Calydon, chorus, st. 4 (1865)

Today was the last day of spring break and my sanity today. It was rainy and chilly yet again. To top it all off, it's Monday. I finished up taxes for my family and my neighbor from down the street; cleaned the master bedroom; did a couple of loads of laundry and several other sundry chores. What a blah day. The good news is, I was able to use my new-to-me tripod to take today's photo. HandsomeHusband found the tripod at the Goodwill store last Thursday and bought it for me! Isn't that sweet of him to think of me while he was out and about? That's what I call a romantic gesture. Thanks again babe...I love it!
