Clean dirt

The last remnants of road salt and sand have been swept away and even the gravel messes along the sidewalk verges now show soil and the beginnings of grass instead of gravel and old paper.  Bob has cleaned out the flower bed under our front windows, and brought to view not only shockingly healthy shrubs, but also four blooming snowdrops and a small herd of tulip plants not yet budding.

With the windows open, I am reminded how noisy this house can be of an evening–people laughing and talking in the other houses and on back porches.  Motorcycles have returned to the street side, but there the windows are battened down.

I haven’t seen the back yard in months but expect I might in the next day or two.  I’m looking forward to seeing if there’s anything afoot in the dirt there.
