The splendidly green flowers of a favourite hellebore. . .
And the fragrant yellow whorls of Mahonia Japonica
Do you enjoy browsing the comments in the blogs you read? It's a wonderful way to discover new bloggers -- although often one discovers sadly that a particularly witty or wise commenter has not yet crossed over to the behind-the-screen addiction we call blogging. Luckily, Ilona has. I loved her comment on my Talking to Myself post the other day. In response to my question about whether you, too, have a Bossy Self and a Bossed-but-carefully-protesting Self, Ilona wrote that,
"My internal conversationalists tend to be maddeningly deferential
(after you, my dear - no, please you go first)which means we can discuss and sort through options all day with little friction but sometimes little resolve. There are times that I wish one of me were pushier ;-) "
So tell me -- is Spring becoming evident where you are? Or are you still sadly ensconced in Winter? Or perhaps you're moving into Fall, in another hemisphere entirely. . . . whichever the case, how are you changing your outfits to suit the weather? Or, instead, are you travelling to that place "where the weather suits your clothes". . . banking off of the northeast wind and sailing like a summer breeze. . . . Ah, to dream. . . .
