Bookish Matters

The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.

Spring in Moscow, Idaho

Moscow today:

On Sunday my first daffodil bloomed. On Monday I noticed the first tulip flower forming. This week we've had sunshine and warm weather, even summery weather a couple days, and my flowers are growing in leaps and bounds. I planted three types of daffodils, but all I remember is that the pale ones, the butter-colored ones, are Ice Follies, one of my favorite varieties. The tulips I planted will be a surprise, because I got a variety pack. Two tulips today are opening, blushing behind their green.

The grass is growing lushly in our yard, and yesterday I fell asleep in the grass and sun with a book over my face. Little flying things hover in clouds over the grass. Boxelder bugs climb across the dirt and daffodils. Muskrats swim up Paradise Creek.
