First Flowers


"Straight on the heels of yesterday’s wildflowers, this morning the violets in
my backyard are in bloom with both white and purple blossoms. The neighbor’s
forsythia bushes have erupted in a tentative first glimmer of yellow flowers,
and the lilac in my own dooryard is covered with tiny darkening buds. Flowers,
it seems, don’t need a calendar to tell them what time of year it is."
