Spring has sprung here in Northport. It's our first spring in this house and, whoa, it's just been breathtaking.
I didn't get a picture of the front walkway when it was covered in purple hyacinths, but here it is covered in tulips. It's like the owners of our house had a sort of fireworks ethic with regard to the bulbs --one beautiful image is replaced by another more beautiful. It's really stunning.
And then there was this beauty. Doesn't she look like she is waiting to go to the ball? I think she's beautiful. In fact, I wrote a haiku about her --not a very GOOD haiku, but I wrote one nevertheless.
My friend Liz is writing a haiku every day as part of National Poetry month. Go check out her blog for really GOOD haikus. Also, Tanita is rocking the haikus, too. Meanwhile, here's my paltry contribution:
Splendid in her finery
Dances in the breeze
It doesn't exactly say what I want, but I'm done with it because I have other, more pressing tasks at hand.
This is the future site of the Cooper Organic Vegetable Garden, Northport Edition. It's just sitting there, like a blank canvas waiting for paint. I could not BE more excited. I can almost taste the tomatoes!
