What perfect little bells they are.

Your garden is in full bloom.

The flowers here have yet to show their faces--which brings to mind that Kenyon poem about flowers the size of faces.

It'll probably be May before I see a single daffodil or tulip here. Spring, alas, has not sprung yet.

I love Lily of the Valley. Those cute little bells with such a lovely fragrance!

Not everything is blooming, but much of it is. I was amazed at all of the plants blooming in Birmingham. It's roughly 320 miles south of me, but all of the wisteria had already bloomed and was actually starting to die back. My friend's yard was gorgeous! Azaleas and knockout roses blooming like crazy. My rose bushes are loaded with buds, but only the knockout has started blooming. It will bloom throughout the summer and into the fall if I just keep it pruned.

Daffodils are just about gone. Tulips are still blooming.

I think I am going to have to read some Kenyon tonight. I have been neglecting my poetry reading. Matter of fact, I've been neglecting all of my reading. Been wiped out or preoccupied.

Yep. Kenyon and more All The King's Men. Sounds like a plan. Just have to keep my fingers crossed that I don't get called out. I'm on call until 8 A.M., but I am off tomorrow, so that's some consolation!
