it's in the air; don't say i didn't warn you.look at these little twigs, planted in the front yard of the orphanage back in november of '02 . . .
here they are in may of last year, in full spring beauty, along with my dwarf lilac bushes.
here, one of my little maples towers over the orphanage's station wagen, loaded with airplanes [the tree, not the volvo], waiting for takeoff on an upcoming windy day.
my tulip solitaire is looking mighty fine today, having survived the deluge of last weekend and the snow of a couple weeks ago. i have several more bulbs i plan to put in the bed next to this hardy harbinger of the spring yet to come.
