An education

If "I am a student", what have I learned? Well... looking back at posts from four years ago, I have learned to close my heart. An open heart is vulnerable, it is ripe for wounding. Close it tight and let no one in - that's the safest course. Isn't it?

Sunny and Mild

I think it is finally safe to plant flowers without risking frost damage. Spring is so late this year. Last year at this time, the dogwoods, lilacs and azaleas had already bloomed; today, they're not even close. I'm afraid the lilacs might not bloom at all... the daffodils didn't. 

Whatever the reasons for the delay, it is time now. I plan a weekend of planting and sprucing up the garden. :)
