Buds have shed their papery scales to reveal spring's long promise: leaves and blooms!
Everything looks lush and vibrant--thanks largely to our higher than usual rainfall--and the warming sun turns paved sidewalks into radiators for passing feet. Everything about spring feels good: blue skies seem bluer now that our winter blahs are leaving town; springsun warms inside and out this time of year...too soon for a sunburn we think! All this new green gives our city-weary hearts a lift of hope, and we are filled again with the excitement of possibility.
