Sharon Daily Photo Turns Two

Up Jumps Springtime, originally uploaded by jahansell.

Two years ago today (and again, one year ago today) I published this photo. There is so much about it that is quintessentially Sharon. The architectural detail of the post, the slightly faded paint, the care the owner, a neighbor of mine, took to create a display for the pleasure of others. Spring is taking its sweet time this year - it's been cold this week, very cold. But the johnny jump-ups, violas and pansies are beginning to show up in pots and window-boxes, the first outward sign of the tremendous energy that is about to be unleashed over the next few months. We're all just waiting for the warm sun to infuse us with the unstoppable urge to get out int eh gardens, sink our hands into the earth, see what survived the cold hard winter and what needs to be planted anew. Many of us have privately started already, with seeds starting in basements and on windowsills - our marigolds and leeks and tomatoes reaching upward, tilting to the light.

Thanks to all who have visited this blog in the last year or two - I don't know what the coming year will bring for Sharon Daily Photo but I'm looking forward to sharing the trip with you.

Congratulations on reaching this milestone. I just recently passed the one year mark and can appreciate your staying power in making the second year. A daily photo blog can feel like a millstone at times, especially when there are other things one could do (or not do :) Keep up the good work.

Two years! Many congratulations, Jenny. That's a beautiful photograph to illustrate your anniversary and I loved to read the commentary.

Thanks also for all your work on the Monthly Theme Days.

Fantastic, Jenny! Congratulations!

Please pass on my congratulations to your daughters for their piece on maple syrup, it was excellent (and I learnt it takes 40 gallons of sap to make one gallon of syrup!)
