Flowers all aglow

Posted on April 19, 2010


It’s been a wonderful month for flowers, indoors and out.  I can hardly wait to see what each new day will bring.  Yesterday it was the first trilliums. This morning it was my birthday bouquet, lit by the sun pouring through the kitchen window and looking lovely even though it’s been around awhile. I like to think that applies the The Mature in general.

Thursday is the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. I could ponder some adjustments to my own personal behavior, which are surely warranted. Instead, I’m just glad for this day. This very one. And I’ll be glad again later in the week when Rob the Firefighter and the Lady Alicia arrive for a little visit, bringing with them my new grand-dog Baxter the Benevolent. Happy Earth Day. A little early.
