It's not an opening scene in a 50's-era period movie...it's the playground of Martin's school. :) At the toy store a week or so ago, I boggled over the amount of marbles and marble accessories available for kids these days. Who needs gameboys and sophisticated computer games when there are jump ropes and marbles and pick-up sticks and JACKS available!!?
After 3 days of rain and drizzle and intermittent sunshine, it appears that someone has rolled out green carpets across the fields. Some are high enough that you can't see the tractor rake patterns. In others, the rows of curving green lines in the earth are somehow soothing. The willow trees, swathed in what appears to be pale green netting, are greening. Close up, the buds look like fluffy, curled caterpillars. Jackdaws strut in the bushes.
