It was unseasonably warm in Central Ohio yesterday, giving us the opportunity to make serious headway in cleaning out our gardens and doing a little wandering. My weeping cherry just exploded with blossoms in one day, and today's rain washed all the blossoms to the ground. Ah well, you take the good with the bad and look forward to many warm days ahead. After such a long winter, sleeping with the windows open feels like some magical, unreal dream. It's like going from a black and white television to a color one ... you can't help but be mesmerized.
