Suddenly, spring

April 10th, 2009

Suddenly everything is greening, budding, sprouting. The lillac tree has leaves, the cherry tree next to the Thai restaurant has blossoms, the forest floor is a riot of blooms and buds. There is a haze of green on the hedges, spots of yellow across the street. Is it warm and sunny and blue of sky. I turned my chair yesterday, while sitting out back during Boychen’s nap, because my legs in their jeans were too warm in the full sun. Suddenly it is spring.
