A shared day off with my dear wife Karen and a continuation of the nearing-spring warming trend allowed a journey around our Syracuse city neighborhood of Eastwood with our beloved rescue mutt Ellie B aka Dogamous Pyle.
Happy dog. Happy us. Nice signs of life springing about here and there, we all noticed on many of the neighbors’ plots in the blocks surrounding the Little Bitty.
Some folks obviously put much work into their pieces of Earth, whether it be last fall or already this March.
Others may have done some planting in years past, and now merely allow Mother Nature to take her course.

When we passed Norwood Park, the home of the Eastwood Bears Pop Warmer football and cheerleading program, a trio of bigger folks — young at heart? — appeared to have another season still in mind.
They chose to throw the old pigskin around on this afternoon in the 50s F.
After our several-block loop, I took a look at the front yard hourglass garden.
No roses or forsythia blooms in sight, but there are succulents above board, and a greening of the rose branches.
What’s the latest outdoor activity you’ve participated in? Do most of your neighbors plot and plan, or seem to let things happen? What season do you feel emerging the most today?
