A coral tree with unusual shell pink flowers is a harbinger of spring. The late afternoon sky colored soft blue is a perfect backdrop. The grass is still winter-yellow. The scene in the mini green belt next to Catherine's town house provided today's moment of beauty.

The garden is once more a blaze of orange. The Clivias flower en masse but once a year. In between an errant plant may produce a blossom or two. Flash and Kaela wander through the beds without fear of recrimination. The pleasure of a big garden is that one or two or more crushed blooms don't matter. Neither do trampled stems. They just encourage resilience.
Jethro announces, "In three days it is a new month and a new season." He is well taught at his nursery school. The cycle of spring imminent.
