I am gone from my beloved Rivergarth for a week. When I return I expect many changes in my garden. I assume the lilacs will be at the inception of bloom. The redbuds and the crabapples will be bright with flowers. The bees will be busy, I think.
The lilacs, bending many a year,
..With purple load will hang;
The bees will not forget the tune
..Their old forefathers sang.
--Emily, of course. Who else uses such vivid paints?
