Progression, Part One

Recent weather forecasts indicate the possibility of snow on April 1 [will  just get rain]. This might occur, but I happen to know that Spring has arrived since I dug up about twenty dandelions out of our back yard on Saturday!

Jan put the potatoes out after the grandchildren and the snow left.  I also put some effort into cleaning up the place.



My personal effort at reducing chaos in the universe.

We were able to get out a bit and ride around town.  We saw some beautiful colors.




Ok, the last one is not an event of nature, but the green fits the season.


This was the best tree we saw, but the tulip trees are coming on!

It was a good end to the week.  The warm temps seem to be on their way at last.

Stay happy,



About rlhoover

A perspective on life and cycling in the Ozarks. I started serious cycling in 2008, after seeing my wife be on the bike for a few years. We have biked many places and hope to continue. I am no where near being a real good cyclist, but I have fun trying to improve. Who am I kidding? Me? Improve??

    Those raised beds look to be in very good order.

    Although the temperatures don’t tell the story, I saw signs of spring here the other day, too – snails!

    In re reducing chaos in the universe: get a grip on your physics. Disorder always increases in one direction or another. The energy you expend to pick up crap in the yard is released as unfocused heat radiating outward chaotically. I propose a theological response: God made it. He can clean it up. Another clue: at the resurrection Mary thought Jesus looked like a gardener and he told her, “Don’t touch me.” So let’s leave him alone to his work out there.
