. . . that greeny flower

The Huskies got a 5 seed, and get to stay on the west coast for the regional (in San Diego). I think they'll make it to the Sweet-16 again. But no way will they get past U-Conn.

Spent the afternoon working in the yard: pruning suckers from the wisteria and the pear, both of which are setting buds now. Raking leaves from under the trellis-bench in the back yard. Daffodils and crocus blooming. Hyacinths like little fists lifting out of the soil. Finches hopping around in the rhododendrons. Ahh . . . Spring!

Back to work today. It feels like I've been gone for a month. But it's only been 6 days.

I think it will be Washington-North Carolina in the DC final. U-Conn choked too badly in the earlier tournament to wend its way out of that bracket.
