This week we had our share of cold mornings - and rain, lots of rain -
but today it's 50 degrees, and it isn't even 7:00 a.m. yet! The birds are chirping, the sun is out, and Sunday is Easter, which should count for something.
(I'm going to ignore the fact that last year, there was a HUGE snowstorm the Sunday after Easter. I like to think the gods were with Reagan, who was visiting from Australia, so she could see snow for the first time.)
There are more and more unmistakable signs of spring, especially in Central Park
and the dogwood* out back is in bloom.
Yes, even in New York City there are dogwoods. Take THAT, Atlanta, Georgia. (Only kidding. The full bloom of spring in Atlanta can make even the most insensitive person weep with joy.)
If you don't know EB yet, head over here for a sec. She's lots of fun, and if you happen to like ice cream - have you ever actually met someone who doesn't like ice cream? - check out her archives. I warn you, though, it could be dangerous.
Anyway, we have started a joint blog, Fifty-two Fridays, and since the end of February, we have each been posting a picture of our respective worlds - California and New York.
California - March 13, 2008
New York - March 20, 2008
Check it out. Let me know what you think? We're having a good time.

Just to let you know how dumb I am, this
is a dogwood. That other tree above is a beautiful blooming something - but I don't know what!
