Wisteria is blossoming around us. Traveling different roads today, we saw clear evidence of its profusion: the walls of purple scaling up the sides of telephone poles, trees, buildings. Although it has been quite cool recently, apparently there has been just enough sun. Lilacs are in bloom everywhere (though not yet the Miss Kims), bearded iris are unfurling. I don't really remember the last east coast El Nino spring, but have hopes that a proper spring will still happen - by that I mean sunshine and balmy temperatures, without the sun beating down on you mercilessly, baking you in an instant.
