You know the song "It Might As Well Be Spring" from the 1945 musical State Fair? You don't? Allow me to introduce you. This was my favorite song when I was in 4th grade. I sang it over and over, working on my Jeanne Crain impression. I have to say, I eventually got pretty good. You know, for a fourth grader.
(Don't you kinda wish you had a video of 9 year old Erin doing her Jeanne Crain impression, in earnest, all alone? Hilarious.)
(Okay, fine. Sometimes while folding laundry I still do my Jeanne Crain impression.)
This week, Beth's photo challenge was to capture Spring. (Capture it? I can't even find it!)
I am not entirely convinced it will ever be True Spring in these parts. Fake Spring has dropped by once or twice, but it's still too cold and gray to feel refreshing in a True Spring kinda way.
THIS IS A VERY LONG AND RIDICULOUS INTRODUCTION TO MY PHOTOS.
MY APOLOGIES. It is very very late and the volume on my rambling has been turned up to 11.
On to the photos!
These photos were taken indoors, but they represent Spring to me in a big way.
We are hopefully going to have a vegetable garden this Summer. We talked about it a lot last Summer, but I was pregnant and not quite up for the challenge. This year I think I'm ready. We started some seeds in our window, to see what comes up.
Clark got his own egg carton and his own dirt and his own seeds. And his own spray bottle to water it all with.
The gardener sometimes needs a drink too.
