Sunday's Walk in the Park

The earth is slooowwwly turning toward spring, and with our temps in the 60s yesterday, our volunteers - 4 new ones too! - completely weeded, turned over, pulled, pruned, and cleaned all the Plant a Row for the Hungry beds and gardens!! Being outdoors in the warm sunshine, laughing and chatting as we all got acquainted was an elixir for the soul!

Have you noticed too how the light is changing? Already the sun is creeping higher in the sky, and the shadows, like the gentle ones captured here during our walk in Oxford's Athletic Park last Sunday afternoon, are growing a bit longer and brighter? Spring is definitely en route ...

Today our temps are supposed to reach 70F ... and after a short stroll around my own garden yesterday, there is MUCH work to be done ... I'm hoping to get to some of it today ...

Have a terrific Friday!

Spring is in the air. Even on Long Island today. This is a lovely painting.
