6 more weeks……..

Here’s one way I remember when spring finally gets here. Back some 18 years ago, when Christy and Vince got married on the “5th weekend of March”, my job was to find a good spot for the wedding photos. I went to Tower Grove Park, hoping to scope out a good spot by some  redbud trees.  But by the 5th weekend in March (April 6 was the date, but she insisted on a March wedding)……the redbuds were done. I ended up finding a set of spectacular cherry trees, big enough for the whole wedding party to be surrounded by fantastic blooms.

So every year around this time, I click around on the internet, looking at plants in bloom times, looking in old photo files for when the darn winter finally broke in recent years. And here’s something I found – this is a falling down house that I walk by everyday. Unlike some other falling down houses, for some reason, I don’t feel sad around this one at all. Maybe because it has a face, sorta, with the windows as eyes, and that open mouth….

And here’s the same house, covered with wisteria last April. You can see it is leaning a little more this year, than last….but oh! Wisteria! Remember it? That scent, and all the bees? Oh, man. The date on the photo is April 12, 2010.

6 weeks, folks…… 6 more weeks…….

And here we are in my version of our ongoing cycle of life…….. Sigh.
