Spring is Edging In!

Wednesday, March 29th, 2006

Well, if this column is about artforms of all sorts, nature is in the spotlight today. It was not sunny, but it was warm. There is still a single myrtle/periwinkle flower under the dryer vent, though I’m not sure if it is the same flower or a new optimistic bloom.

But today the side yard was blooming, with several wild violet flowers. It isn’t exactly bursting yet but there were too many to count easily.

And I saw a large patch of purple crocus blooming near the corner where I turn into the Foster Community Center neighborhood. April across the street told me that they have a patch of crocus in their yard, blooming, as well.

The huge piles of snow at the edges of the largest parking lots are down to some very ugly and dirty small piles, and that’s all the snow I’ve seen for weeks. I think we really are going to see more spring than not from now on, at least for a while.

That said, we always seem to see at least a few snowflakes in April. May they appear early, and lightly, and be done with that nonsense very soon!

I did not remember my camera today so no photos. I know that’s a big letdown for spring flower talk, but perhaps imagining color in your mind is a good exercise…
