Up on our hill, the apples are still blooming and spring is boasting its most beautiful weather in years, with gentle slowly soaking rains setting off days of sun. Wild plum fragrance has given way to apple and lilac. The air is sweet, the days are long, while gardens demand we turn our energy to digging, hauling and planting! And the lawns! It’s time to just walk away, take a tour around the block or up a mountain, breathe deeply — the yard will be there when you return.
