Out of sync

I had been wondering what was strange about this spring,
apart from its lateness,

when it occurred to me on a drive home

that all these harbingers are being lit
 by a higher, stronger, longer sun,

undappled by foliage on trees.


  1. And, they are all out at the same time. Odd isn't it?

  2. It's a sudden spring here. We still have some giant snowdrops out too.

  3. You're right , of course . The rather splendid weeping willow I can see across the river is finally going green ... it looked very striking , whipping back and forth in this week's gale force winds..

  4. What a visually acute comment that is. Also, accurate. I've noticed it too but haven't analysed it - thanks!
