After a very slow spring awakening, with daily temperatures mostly below-average for the season, there are now signs of plant life surfacing in Rosetta Gardens. The daffodils and tulips are the first to make their appearance, followed by other plants and flowers; suddenly filling the garden beds with bright yellows, reds, blues, and purples, while trees continue to put on their summer dress in imperceptible spurts. And soon the gardens will be filled with a sheltering green canopy; perfect for sitting under its shade with a good book in-hand to read. But not just yet. There’s still an early morning chill in the air today at 11 Celsius and I’m sure the plants and flowers wished they hadn’t been so bold as to make their appearance and had waited just a little longer for the warm days that I am sure will soon be here!
