Behind the Times
My forsythia finally bloomed yesterday, Sunday--Mother's Day--almost a full week behind the bright blossoms I saw in Traverse City last Monday. My son called me on Saturday, and I talked to my own mother on Sunday, so it was a satisfying if low-key holiday for me. I have a lot more to catch up on here, including Friday's spelling bee, Saturday's Kentucky Derby, books, books, books, and all the latest wildflowers in the woods, but those will have to wait another day or two. For now, I offer this promissory note in the form of one of my favorite violets. Isn't she adorable?
