Mother Nature is a tease. / April 21, 2002
Mother Nature is a tease.
It’s been over a week since the first deciduous trees sprouted leaves. But every year I know spring has come when the big tree in front of my apartment windows has bloomed. The warm weather this past week caused everything to bloom. Even the tree started to.
Until saturday. At which point the weather changed and everything has stalled.
That tree is only in perfect bloom for a couple days each year. Shortly after it blooms, there is always a heat wave which wilts the leaves.
For those three days, you can almost smell the life growing out there.
