"Blasts from the past were like the rooms one entered and re-entered in dreams: they would not stay nailed down. When you returned to them, they had changed - they suddenly had more space or a tilt or a door that had not been there before. New people were milling around, the floors undulated, and the sun shone newly, strangely in the windows, or through the now blasted-open ceiling, or else it shone not at all, as if having fled the sky."
There are refreshing sparks of spring in our perennial garden! The loropetalum, forsythia, salvia, some of the azaleas, blooming. North Texas enjoys such a short spring each year, a blink, before the wicked summer begins yet again. So we make the most of it!
Kat's World tagged me with the Honest Scrap award, which requires that I list 10 honest and interesting things about myself and then pass the torch to seven other bloggers. Sounds easy enough.
