A little Ides of March fun this rainy Monday morning:

From "Rinse the Blood of My Toga"
CALUPURNIA (that's Mrs Julius Caesar to you and me):

I told him, Julie, don't go. Don't go Julie, I said. Don't go, it's the
Ides of March.

If I told him once, I'd told him a thousand times, Julie, don't go ...

Julie, don't go, I said. It's the Ides of March. Beware already.

I don't blame him for going.

All right, so I wasn't exactly wandering lonely as a cloud and crocuses aren't the same sure sign of spring as daffodils, but still! Crocuses! In the front garden! Peaking their little heads out above the snow!

After this winter, I'll take any sign I can get! Roll on spring!
