I finally spotted several daffodils! They were in a churchyard across from the library in a nearby town.

Flowers can be misleading. I saw lots of those little blue things — scylla? — two days ago, and even some daffs, and yesterday we woke up with flipping SNOW.

For the first time in months,
the parked car in the sun
was TOO hot
and the refrigerated air was turned on.

A bluebird comes tenderly up to alight
And fronts the wind to unruffle a plume,
His song so pitched as not to excite
A single flower as yet to bloom.
It is snowing a flake, and he half knew
Winter was only playing possum.
Except in color he isn't blue,
But he wouldn't advise a thing to blossom.       -- Robert Frost

Flowers in April hereabouts have mixed messages.
I am as happy as everyone else when bulbs and seeds and trees
send up blossoms where they grow.

I have mixed emotions when a barren piece of ground,
in one day's time,
suddenly has DAFFODILS!!, about a dozen of them,
screaming yellow, white, and green at me as I drive the car past.
Somebody put them there ... should I not be pleased?
For some reason it sets my teeth on edge.
Never mind, I'll get used to them.


What I love is the blooms on the magnolia trees!

a lovely sight

A swallow arrived yesterday on the 19th. It looks like they have reset their clocks to be the same as last year, a week later than they used to arrive.

Blue sky for a change -- a bonus.
After all that rain
the trees and grass are loud with green,
and you ought to hear
the twilight choruses hereabouts.
There's more than
bellowing spring peepers now,
there are whistling bird calls in the mix
(grackles? blackbirds?).

I removed the combination snow brush / ice scraper
from the back seat of my sedan,
to put it in seasonal retirement in
the closet in the spare room.

It's Spring
and this lovesick lunatic
woke up this morning groaning and laughing
Breakfast tastes better I'm light as a feather
and my brain is as fresh as the rain.
Sure my calf is torn my head lightly aches
but my mind's delightfully awake.
I'm not fine but I sure am dandy
Each fragrant breath feels like peach brandy
Because it's Spring.

The 4th has been and gone,
and so has Cinco de Mayo,
and even Mother's Day is just past.

So what happens in eastern Massachusetts?
The better part of this coming week
is going to be more March -- the "like a lion" part --
than May.

Okay, no blizzards, but nights below freezing,
and the landlord has turned the heat off
in my apartment building. At least I think the manager has.

Fine, I'll break out the warm nightgown, the bed socks,
and pile on top of the bed
every blanket and coverlet I own ...

happens twice a year anyway, the night-without-heat transition.
I'll survive.

I have an electric mattress pad and an electric blanket.
The one time I went to the Portsmouth Maritime Folk Festival in New Hampshire, which is always the last weekend of September, I came downstairs after the first night and told the desk clerk that I'd kept turning up the heat but the room never got warmer. He said the heat hadn't been turned on for the winter yet! Of course the next night was cold, too, but I brought up a blanket I keep in my car. A friend has since told me she always travels with an electric blanket, which sounds like a good idea.

And spring honestly is here.
There is more than enough steady, soaking rain.
The trees are a blinding new-leaved green:
in German they would say 'zartes Grün," tender green.

And the temperature is mild, with little wind.
Not summer
-- and positively NOT winter.

It won't last long, it never does in this day and age,
but spring is here none the less.

This morning I asked myself
why the wind sounds so different now.

But the answer on this windy day is plain to see.

I've been hearing a winter wind for months
driving its way through bare branches of bare trees.
That was more or less true six weeks ago.

But now it is the end of May,
and the maple trees outside the window are fully leaved,
and what a difference it makes
to the sound of the wind!
