As I take my daily walk, I've been hungrily scanning the landscape for signs of spring. Really, I would settle for one small snowdrop, a crocus, or just the green foliage of a daffodil--but spring has been eluding me in spite of the fact the temperatures are warming.
Today, though, I was rewarded with this: a little girl perched in a tree, swinging her legs and reading. I'm glad I didn't have my camera because it would have broken the spell. She's safer in my memory bank, anyway---the first welcome sign of spring.
