Now making their first appearance of the season

What a beautiful and peaceful day after yesterday's gusts and lightning accompanied by torrential downpours delivering way more rain than the official amounts recorded. The marathon creates a cordon that isn't worth crossing and the peace is delightful. Seen today as new arrivals are white anemone blanda, pink oxalis, and shoots of vestigial Dutch tulips that eventually produce vestigial or no blooms. There's more and more of everything previously reported and there are new buds on various sorts of daffodils, narcissi, and jonquils. I'm hoping that this will be a good year for single jonquils; there's no color like that sharp, sharp yellow.
