SPRING HAS EXPLODED

Every plant, every tree is in flower.
Buds and blooms are everywhere.

This is a magnificent Spring.

GARDENER'S RULE in our climate is
"don't plant until the 15th of April,"
which is the end of this week.
And sure enough, the forecast for week's end
is for temperatures in the low 30s.
(Just don't freeze, please.)


"Earth laughs in flowers."

-- Ralph Waldo Emerson
