daphneSpring seems to breathe: a day of sun, a morning of rain, a night of wind. A single daffodil pops up amidst a drift of grassy allium. A scattering of twin-leafed hellebore seedlings appear around their blooming mother. The daphne, glossy again after winter’s blackening frost, shelters scores of tiny florets. Clutches of tulips, buds tight as nuts, unfold the soft green paddles of their wide leaves. The peonies pray. The irises stretch upward, straight as blades. A teasing of warm rain barely wets the soil. Spring takes another breath.
