Early signs of spring in Tampa despite this chilly La Nina winter.....

My neighbor Helen's maple across the street from me, having just lost its leaves last month, is in full ruddy bloom. A few of my chickens lay an egg every few days. Plus I can feel on a primal level the increasing daylengths when sunbeams warm my face and chest as I work in the gardens. And so I am reminded of my favorite symphony  'Appalachian Spring' by Aaron Copland. Of the many performances I've seen and heard on-line and CD, this one feels to me to be especially fresh and intimate. Enjoy, John
