The Balcony Scene

Romeo, O Romeo wherefore art thou Romeo?

Spring is a time of courtship, rebirth and renewal. It reminded me of a contemporary rendition of Romeo and Juliet we attended last summer. Spring will soon bring it's courtship to fruition and the rebirth of the warm summer days will follow...along with parades, ballgames, hide and seek games going into the warm summer nights and a return to the "active" season after this season of hibernation.

It is my birthday today...and my birthday always reminds me of the the new season about to burst forth. I heard on the news this morning that the spring desert flowers are beginning to bloom in the Southwest and this will be a spectacular year for them due to the heavy rains. The blooming of desert flowers are always the precursor to spring in the Midwest as the warm air moves into the heart of the country.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DAN!!! So you, too, are a fish! I'm wishing you all good things for your new year.
I'll have to keep my eye out for the wildflowers. Is there anything more beautiful than wild fields of spring color? I had a covey of quail in my front yard yesterday morning for the first time this year, and saw a couple of red-tailed hawkes full of twitterpation atop an electrical pole. Surely spring is right around the corner!
