lovely lovely spring

Gah! What a gorgeous morning! Early thunderstorms followed by a burst of sunshine illuminating the green green grass, the dogwoods, forsythia, magnolias, tulips, daffodils. Spring is so pretty in Illinois! It almost makes the winter bearable... debatable.  To celebrate we decided to have lunch en plein aire

NATURE rarer uses yellow
  Than another hue;
Saves she all of that for sunsets,—
  Prodigal of blue,
Spending scarlet like a woman,        5
  Yellow she affords
Only scantly and selectly,
  Like a lover’s words.

- Emily Dickinson
