It’s got to be my favourite time of the year. The tulips are in full swing, the cherry and pear trees are in bloom (the nectarines are already done). The bananas are unwrapped from their winter packaging and grow at the most astonishing rate, the greenhouse is stocked with seedlings. There’s life everywhere!
Even the cat’s got a spring in his old legs, and has been seen to move at speed at least twice recently.
(Picture shows plums in bloom in the Osaka. Also nice.)
