…a beautiful spring day…

Even though we’ve had some frosty nights this week (& one Canadian buddy posted photos of snow in Ottawa yesterday) it’s SPRING!  Flowers busting out all over make it hard to stay on the road when cherry blossoms and majestic dogwoods divert attention from the boring pavement.  Oooops.

One of my favorite spring-is-here happenings in Williamsburg has come –  the wisteria  is ‘in’ at our downtown Regional Library (of course, lots of books are also ‘in’ our library to be checked out, figuratively and literally! : )

It’s a gorgeous sight — a gigantic arbor with lavender wisteria twisting in & out & all around exuding beauty to be enjoyed…

So maybe the internal scenery of our lives is not so sunny right now… maybe even downright CRAPPY — but it’s still a beautiful spring day.  And hey, if we take time out from the doldrums dredging us in despair (or variations of crap), we might notice that, yes, it’s a beautiful spring day.

And if we get up off our tushies to go see the wisteria at the library, it’s interesting to note that after several months hiatus the MAD ABOUT CHOCOLATE SHOP has re-opened with all the old goodies on the menu — chocolate ganache brownies, griffin bars, cakes, cookies – the whole works.

It really is a beautiful spring day!!

“And the Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth’s dark breast
Rose from the dreams of its wintry rest.”

Percy Bysshe Shelley
