This is the time of year when on a day off from the store, I walk out the side door of the Little Bitty, take a left, and soak it all in.
Spring is settling into the Syracuse city neighborhood of Eastwood.
I appreciate every little burst of color.
My dear wife Karen predicts that our 2-year-old star, Cherry Cherry, will be moving from buds to blossoms soon. How exciting it will be to see that happen next to the hourglass garden for the first time.
And a half-dozen feet away and a few years older, the flowering Robinson crabapple seems to have raised up another couple of feet over the winter. It, too, will have its flowers soon.
Between those two and roses coming up in the hourglass garden, my nose should be as delighted as my eyes.
What sights and scents are coming up in your neighborhood? Do notice the growth in your yard? What blossoms are your favorite, and why?
