A fortnight.  That is how far ahead we are this year, spring-wise.  The camellias are breaking bud, and there are daffodils blooming.  The chives are well up, and the peas went into the ground a few days ago.  Last year I noted these joyful happenings on March 15.

I am behind, however far ahead Mother Nature may be.  I have ordered no seeds, planted no trees, filled no little pots with compost.  It isn’t that I am not looking forward to my garden, but that without a winter to endure this year I am left without the wild urge to celebrate spring.
