An Unbelievable Shrieking...


Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night.
~Rainer Maria Rilke

I took another trip around our yard the other day to see what progress was being made toward spring.  Quite a lot is coming into bloom.  We were in Boston yesterday though and I was amazed at how much further along they are because of the tempering influence of the ocean.  That’s kind of nice.  One gets to live through the blooming twice with about an hour’s travel.  I saw the magnolia tree blooming gloriously in Boston and will also get to see ours in a couple of weeks.  Sweet!

love that quote and hope that I can get a few others to see it today. Blooming is happening at the speed of light down here.

Things are popping out here too. I'm sure we're behind you but it's nice to see in any case.
