yesterday was the kind of spring day you wait all winter for. the temperature was perfect, and the day was spent meeting up with friends, inside and out.
there was playground fun:
after lunch we spent some time on my friends' blue ridge property, where they recently completed work on a stunning yurt. the old house on the property will eventually be replaced with a new one; in the mean time they have the lovely yurt to cozy up in. the views up there are astonishing, and it was lovely to bask in the sun and bathe in a fresh mountain wind.
today it is cold and raining. but the dogwoods have tiny fluorescent leaves, the red bud is pinking up and the pastures have a verdant irish glow. bring on the festival of colors!
