Hold this a sec, first day of spring and reading.

1. "Let me hold him while you drink your tea."

2. There is something different about the light and the air in the Grove. Where before the crocuses and snowdrops looked as if they were fighting for survival in a cold and muddy world, today they look at home. Let's call it the first day of spring.

3. Caroline brought Alec a copy of When We Were Very Young, crisply printed on bright white paper. I wish she could have heard what I heard while I was making supper: Nick reading aloud from it to Alec.
