Optimism is
the hallmark
of spring
in New England.
An upturned face
to catch the sun.
 Time of discovery
and new birth.
Fledgling daffodils 
burst through their
winter blanket
of dry leaves.

A tiny crocus yawns
at the break of day.


About Mary Jane

I am a retired English teacher. My husband, Frank, and I have lived on Cape Cod since 2000. I am a lifelong bread baker and writer and have been posting a blog on Falmouth Patch for the last few years. Savory Seasons has been largely devoted to recipes and food in general. I am hoping to expand my focus in this new blog.
