New letter - minneapolis spring time
Angelo: Another letter from the USA! We are lucky to have friends who like to write and send us photos. All of us here enjoyed reading this letter and looking at the photos of spring while we are in the middle of winter.
Dear Angelo and Adam -
I had originally intended to write this letter quite a while ago to tell you a little bit about our Springtime. However as I look at the calendar, I see that it is actually now officially summer. Time seems to slip by so quickly! On behalf of Anthony, Giancarlo and Tyler, I think I can say that Spring is our favorite time of the year. After a long winter, there's nothing quite like getting out in the yard and taking in all of the wondrous sights, sounds and smells. It's really a lot like renewing old friendships.
We love our old friends the Lilac and Spirea bushes. They always put on an incredible show.
Some of our yard acquaintances are a bit more no nonsense. Apollo never has much to say. As Tyler observed, he is quite literally stone faced. Giancarlo is quick to point out in his defense that he is, after all, a Roman God, and therefore not likely to engage in idle chit chat.
Although it's really just a city lot, our yard seems like a vast landscape to us, with lots nooks and crannies to hide in or explore.
We even occasionally have some exotic visitors. This rather fierce looking wild turkey stopped by earlier in the spring. We were all quite content to just observe him from inside the house.
I hope you enjoyed this little Springtime snapshot. Sometimes I wish we could put this season in a bottle and save it forever.
Angelo: Adam, Papa and I really enjoyed hearing from you. Please write again, soon.
