Do you have a favorite first sign of spring in your area? Of course you do. And here is a close up of mine: bunches of little open-during-the-day and close-up-at-night purple flowers that, seemingly, grow out of the dirt... dirt, not soil, along the asphalt driveway that serves as a cut-through from E. 10th St. to E. 9th St. and also as the entryway to the parking lots of our buildings. They only last a week or 10 days and this week is their 2009 life.
Here is a view of their larger world. If this isn't a miracle, I don't know what is! They are such an impossible yet hopeful sign of life and beauty and all that is renewed each year (especially after 141" of snow). The season of Easter is in the air here.
