We had a truckload of rain over the weekend and once the flood waters recede, some warmth and sunlight is expected this week. That sets the stage for an explosion of green outdoors. The forsythia usually go first, with bright yellow flowers. Then the grass will turn a lush green color, a daffodil or two will open, and and shortly the dogwood will get in on the action. It’s clearly getting ready.
But blooms are not imminent.
So I wait, checking out the tree each morning, hopeful if not quite patient.
