April

April 2, 2017 (092/365)

"April is the cruellest month, breeding  
Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing  
Memory and desire, stirring  
Dull roots with spring rain."
~ T.S. Eliot, The Waste Land

If Eliot was right, this weekend was indeed cruel. The gorgeous weather on Saturday was so motivating that we cleaned up the yard, pruned trees and perennials, burned sticks, and laid fresh mulch in the garden beds. Yesterday, it almost felt as though you could watch the trees budding, but today's gloom confirmed that April is the ultimate tease. Still, even a day leaves me optimistic.
