Turning Winter Into Spring...by Brute Force

Today's the first day of spring, even if it doesn't much feel like it. We've had a couple of snowstorms in the past week and we're due for "scattered flurries" tonight.

It's the kids' first winter on the East Coast, and I think they've had their fill of cold weather. So Kelly decided to take matters into her own hands and turn the apartment into a spring oasis.

She and the children have begun putting large flowers up on the walls.


The kids also requested a bee.

It's not quite like the fruit blossoms in our Berkeley garden, but it will have to do. And this being the East Coast, I'm sure it will be unbearably hot before we know it.
