I see a sea anemoneTraffic is light and so is the morning as I toddle down the road. Really noticeably lighter of sky than usual this morning. Bright sunny days earlier this week, lighter early morning commute, still light when I get home - these are good signs.
See a sea anemone
And that'll be the end of me.
While the vicious fish was caught unawares in the tenderest of tendrils
Underneath her tender gills

And the surest sign I've seen yet that winter is in retreat and spring approaches from stage left? On Tuesday I parked nose-first under a tree for an early meeting off-campus and came out to find aphid droppings all over my windshield. The pitch is flowing, the aphids drinking and dumping, the machinery of growth is starting up again.
