Because it’s pretty.

Spring has sprung.

This year the sand plum, the flowering plum (unless it’s a cherry or some other  heirloom fruit tree, we and the arborists are still uncertain after 18 years) the forsythia, the hyacinths, and the scented daffodils, and most of the tulips decided to bloom within the same week. In a few more days we’ll have lily of the valley blooming too. If I don’t expire of hay fever from the pollen, I’ll be nose-drunk on all the perfumes.

If you squint at the garage in the pic with the orange tulips you can just see the edge of the porch where I often write during the summer.

Happy spring, all!
