forsythia; harbinger of spring and other yellow.

[Forsythia/my bed/poppy closeup/chart of Winter Harbor, ME]

It's true that sometimes you notice a certain color more than others.

Which is a good thing, because usually I am drawn to black ... not a natural match for our aesthetic at Saipua. Not now at least.

This winter has been a real brute for me...I won't go into too much detail, other than to say I have the sudden ability to sleep late every morning (never before could I sleep past 8am) and that my winter blues are less charming than they have been in years past. But March is a whole new ballgame - it's going to be 50 degrees this week, I just unearthed my copy of Simon and Garfunkel Live in Central Park, and I have a compost bin to figure out (with two months' worth of kitchen scraps collecting in a rot bucket under our sink).

So onward!

i've never been to winter harbor - but thinking about making an early spring trip up the coast of Maine, any suggestions on good places to see/eat/stay?
