2014 First Day of Spring

On a number of blogs I visit around the ole blogosphere, spring is already a glorious thing.  If you're doubtful, take a gander at some of the links below to the right.  Especially Bella's Rose Cottage.

But spring comes slowly round these parts, and March is an exercise in patience and delayed gratification.  But before I left for the office this morning, I took a quick stroll on the garden tour of My Tiny Garden to find the faithful Columbines.  Once again, they show up first, looking more like a clump of parsley, don't you think?  But a promise of warmer days to come.

Earlier this morning, while drinking a cup of coffee, a familiar sound came from outside.  I cracked open the bedroom window to hear the shrill call of a male Red Winged Blackbird, sitting at the top of the bare branches of my tallest Aspen.  Haven't seen those guys for months.  Found a great video of them, if you don't have these in your neck of the woods, take a look and listen.

Happy First Day of Spring.

Tunesday - Tommy Bolin

From time to time, there are deep conversations at my office about music.  And since I've got about 20 years on my coworker who is a great guitarist, I get the joy of introducing him to music he's never heard.  The good stuff, the obscure stuff...............things in my vinyl collection.  So speaking of guitarists who are no longer with us...............another one lost to the needle.  Tommy Bolin.  This is one of the mellow tunes, but the Private Eyes Album is one not to be missed.

Out of respect, I waited till my parents were gone from the house before I cranked Post Toastie.  But crank it I did.
