I think I missed spring. We went right into summer. It was like this in Chicago, too. We would wait for winter to be over. It dragged until that first warm, sunny day. We waited with such anticipation. Then we had that one spring day. Bam ,It was summer.But I am waiting for the blue Jacaranda tree to be in bloom. That will be my clue. I can see one from my carport. It still hasn't bloomed. I had never seen such a tree before I moved to Florida. Many of the blooming plants here , I was familiar with because of what I knew from New Orleans. But never a Jacaranda. There are two blooms that I really miss..peonies and lilacs. They look so pretty together ,too.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
