This Week in Pictures — 3.30.14

Spring at the Peconic River Herb Farm
Spring at the Peconic River Herb Farm

There’s something to these weeks of waiting for spring. They test your faith in the process of renewal. The peas planted on St. Patrick’s Day shrivel with the plummeting temperatures, or get washed out by heavy rains. The afternoon light is a dim, pale yellow, a shadow of the robust hue of August. At our windowsills, we wait, anxious, our trowels, fishing rods, harrows, baseball gloves in hand, waiting. Spring can’t take much longer to arrive.

    Great photos again this week, Beth! Got a little sentimental at the Calverton tracks pics… looks like they were taken not far from the site of the Great Calverton Pickle Works Wreck (1926)… the 88th anniversary of which will occur Aug. 13. No need to remind you, Beth, that your Great Great Aunt Marjory was on that train and, thankfully, survived.
