April Fools Day should never be on a Monday, that is just cruel. The arrival of spring has been much delayed, but there is finally some progress Ė no joke! On the drive to and from work I looked for the first forsythia that is truly and fully yellow, not just a faint suggestion of yellow, but didnít see one. With each day there are more green tinges on trees. I did see a magnolia in bloom today, down near the shore, with a great southern exposure, but I think it will still be a while before mine show color.
