Spring

However brief, spring seems to really be here finally: today it’s a wall of rain pushed by wind that sounds positively frightful in some rooms, but the temp was already above 5 (that would be above 40 in “American”) when I left for the ferry at 7 this morning.  Daffodils are in full bloom now and the crocus are thick and already aging into waxy overblownness.  

No buds yet on the biggest of trees but the bit of twig that has grown on each branch of the chestnut by my office window is visible even through the dripping screen.

The daylight hours now stretch to nearly 15 of the 24. And the temporary “summer sidewalks” are under construction along Argyle Street, promising summer dining beyond this spring burst.
