Sightings and scents

Today, the breezes are balmy. There are more and more anemone leaves visible, and now leaves of paperwhite narcissus are beginning to appear. There are butterfly eggs all over the potted asclepias. These milkweeds are still providing lots of color. The cardinals and mockingbirds continue to descend upon the lantana berries in great numbers. Allium leaves are everywhere. Any day now, loquat flowers will open. The greenish-podded hyacinth beans continue to blanket the air in a cloying scent. It will be really bad when the beans, the loquats, and the portable chcmical toilet next door all join aromatic forces.
