What a Difference a Week Makes
A week ago Friday I flew from Toronto to Portland, and of course found utter delight at the greenness all around me when I arrived. What I had left was life trying to fight its way back into action.
Returning yesterday I was stunned and delighted at what had happened in a week. Perhaps the most exciting symptom is the small apple tree in my backyard; last year it produced two or three flowers. This picture shows one bud - there are well over a hundred others this year. This is an utter delight to me.
