April 4th's installment of Project Spectrum filled me with high hopes that spring had indeed arrived; then, to my astonishment, that same week brought snow and more freezing temperatures. (It's Michigan, I really should have known better.) But now spring PS 2.0 resumes with lots of greens, pinks, and yellows now that spring seems to be here to stay.
In the little garden behind our house.
Despite being hard hit by the snow, I’m happy to say the sunny daffodils have made a complete recovery. These starry-eyed fellows are in our yard.

And More Spring Blossoms
It’s proving to be a big year for the hardy Dandy Lion.
My parents’ lilac bush.
Not pink, but these grape hyacinths are so cute I didn’t want them to feel left out. Happy spring (or fall, if you’re on that half of the globe) to all!
"One thing was certain, that the white kitten had had nothing to do with it--it was the black kitten's fault entirely." (L. Carroll, Through the Looking Glass)
I'm Yankee-Born and Southern-Raised, which makes me kind of Southern Gothic (in the old literary sense of the word). After 15 years in the Big Apple, I spent 4 years on a farm in Michigan raising chickens and llamas and learning to spin, knit, and needle-felt. Now I'm back home in NYC with my much-beloved spouse and one crazy tortiseshell cat. You can also find me on Ravelry.com as okitten.
