My Favorite Flowers


Today is a beautiful early spring day in southern New England. It is sunny and 60 and full of promise--a day that begs you to come outside to play, or open the windows and blinds to let it inside and mingle. It asks you to turn off the TV and put a little jazz on the stereo, or something else without lyrics, and with beautiful flowers like these on the table, it transforms cleaning from chore to celebration. It encourages you to fill your grocery cart with fresh fruits and vegetables, and eat something entirely from the earth. It gives me permission to burn lilac candles again, and it whispers in my ear, only three more months until summer vacation....
