Today I’m home sick with an unidentified variation of the Tired Achies, so I’m cheating with today’s blogpost. I took this photo last year, but you wouldn’t know that unless you remembered the post in which this photo originally appeared. Yesterday here in Keene, I saw Snowdrops blooming in the exact same place as last year, and on Tuesday, one of my teaching colleagues mentioned that the yellow crocuses were blooming in his neighborhood. Since I haven’t yet photographed either phenomenon this year, you’ll have to satisfy yourself with recycled images. Somehow, seeing the same old flowers year after year never seems to grow tiresome, at least not in the almost-spring when we Granite Staters are starved for nearly any sort of greenery we can get.
