Spring is springing
Spring is coming to Finland just in time for Holy Week. Yesterday there were new merchants in the kauppatori selling Easter grass, pussy willow, and wreaths made of twigs. Sophia is growing her own Easter grass at school so we bought pussy willow and a gift for friends at Easter. We took a walk to find that there are new monuments appearing out from under the layer of snow including a monument to the first daguerreotype photograph taken in Turku. The promise of a beautiful spring is everywhere.
The Easter grass makes so much sense that I know I will have some growing next year in Concord. When nothing comes up in yard, grow a little patch of something beautiful in the house.
