The snow was falling.
The weatherman was announcing that winter would be extended in Canadaland several + + + more weeks.
I bought spring.
And the clerk, whose palm I crossed with loonies and toonies, folded it in green tissue.
Wrapped it in cellophane.
Tied it with a yellow ribbon.
And slid it over the counter.
I grabbed spring and ran.
That’s what we Northern Girls do when we’re hanging by our last winter nerve.
You would have done the same.
I know it.
Hump Day. Spring right over it.
Note: These clicks were totally experimental. I wanted to see if I could get the completely wrapped tulips through the cellophane. They remind me ever so much of watercolor, which is one of my favorite art mediums.
