It must be the vernal equinox
I’m seeing a lot of pictures of Haft Seen in my RL FB. Happy Nowruz to the celebrants of that holiday and happy Spring to the northern hemisphere!
Honestly, this is the ugliest moment of the year in Wisconsin — as winter abates but before spring has sprung and the grass is riz. Everything is brown except for the traces of remaining snow, which are grey. We need a few more weeks before we get that feeling around here. Passover and Easter are three weeks away and hopefully there’ll be a little more green to see by then. Or probably it’ll have snowed again. The latest snow I remember in my lifetime came the last week of May, the year my high school bestie got married on that weekend.
