Menorise [men-oh-rIse]; the process of inculcation

"The first day of spring day is one thing; the first spring day is quite another.  The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month."
(Henry Van Dyke)


  1. Today was truly a spring day for us both, I think, Yam.

  2. I take it spring was a bit late this year.

  3. A nice observation, Henry, but it doesn't make me any more happy, as it really is true. We're talking six or eight weeks at my house; one crocus and no daffs yet open.

  4. Beautiful photo...

    Are these flowers are sleeping ?

    thanks for sharing

  5. So true, but spring is here now. For the time being at least. If only the temperatures would match the beautiful weather!

  6. Henry Van Dyke was a very smart man. Our first day of spring was rather gloomy but now spring has finally arrived.


Have your say...the cloud is listening.
Meanwhile I will put the kettle on: if you ask a question it will be answered.
So be sure to check back!!!
