Welcome to town

Hi April! Welcome to town, lovely to see you again. Oh, yeah, March, the door is that way. Don’t let it hit you on the way out.

April, my dear friend! I missed you! Look, I got you flowers!


Or maybe you got me flowers. It’s so hard to tell. It’s all good, and thanks for melting that snow from yesterday. March was being such a pain.


I’m working on some flowers for your friend May. I’ll share them with you too, if you’re nice enough. Not the tomatoes, though, or the peppers. You’re wonderful, but a bit too fickle for those sensitive types.


I’ve definitely got some peas for you, and lettuce. Spinach too, just as soon as you warm up a tiny bit more. I saw you were still considering snow; I blame March’s bad influence. I know you’re stronger than that: don’t listen!

Anyway, I’m glad to see you. Really, really glad. I hope you’re settling in well. Let’s get together soon for drinks, maybe some food, and definitely more flowers. I see those daffodil shoots you’ve got hiding over there, you know. Looking forward to them.

    I moved into this house in mid-June last year, so this is my first spring here. I’m delighted to say that there are hundreds of crocus along the back fence, and peeking up here and there in the lawn. It seems to be a warm microclimate, too, because they were blooming before I saw crocus anywhere else.
