REALLY feeling better about the spring

When Boston gets its spring on, it does it in a beautiful way. I love the magnolias that line Commonwealth Avenue and Beacon Street. These are on Comm Ave. Absolutely voluptuous blossoms--they're almost vulgar.

And this next picture just tickles me. Along Comm Ave, we saw a delightful statue of a black Labrador peeking out between the balusters. Notice that there's also a bronze tennis ball just to the left...

As we were admiring the statue, we heard a voice coming from the second-floor balcony. "Here's the real one!!" she said, and a friendly black Lab stuck his head out between those balusters and barked hello.

That made us smile for quite a while.

Feeling better about the spring

Okay, so perhaps I was unnecessarily grumpy about the snow. It didn't stay around long. It never does this late in the season (knock wood!). And today is simply glorious, with bright blue skies (though it's colder than I'd like).

At least the Easter bunny won't have to hide the eggs in the snow!!

no no no no NO!!!!!

It's snowing.


It's sticking to the ground and the streets and the cars and everything.

I can't even bear to take a picture of it. It's just so WRONG.
