Yesterday was the first day of spring. We were wandering around in the strangely warm weather, enjoying pure spring, not realizing that it was, technically the first day, until evening. X-rays of flowers by Brendan Fitzpatrick made us think of it.
Daffodils and tulips are up. Cherry trees are in bloom. We found this haiku by Isa: a gift.
Contemplating their beauty,
Strangers are like friends.
