There was a ladybug on my window-sill yesterday. I was so excited, I haven’t seen one in such a long time. It must have been the weather; it’s been unusually warm the past couple of days. Unfortunately, after two days of blessing us all with her bright and buttery face, the sun has gone back into hiding. The ladybug I saw has vanished as well. But I will not yet give up my hopes for spring—look at what I saw on campus today! These sweet crocuses were sticking straight up out of the earth like stretching fairies.
Speaking of flowers, my Valentine’s flowers have begun to shrivel up. I am going to preserve them by pressing them in some books. Soon enough there will be more flowers on the ground. I am looking forward to walking through them with my parasol.
