Almanac: March 23.

Spotted today:

  • a row of cherry trees (edit: plum trees; they’re botanically related, in the Prunus family, though plums bloom first) in bloom up the street; they began showing color practically overnight (definitively within the past 24 hours)
  • star magnolias in bloom
  • saucer magnolias with blossoms swollen provocatively
  • quite possibly the weirdest weather pattern, with foreboding clouds, warning sirens and forks of lightning followed by a gorgeous blue sky; today’s 70 degrees giving way to tomorrow’s 45
  • and Rob making the first pass over the lawn with the mower after work.
