Spring marches…


Our tulips are fading, but some of the neighbors’ still look tip-top. I saw the first drifts of yellow pollen yesterday (sneeze).

Today’s vocabulary: aliquot (‘alikwət)

(noun) a portion of the larger whole, especially a chemical sample

(verb) to divide a whole into parts, or to take parts from a whole

    Tulips fading!! Ours barely have the green out of the ground, at least the snow has melted off the big sections! Too bad the deer will nip them before we even see the buds!

    Report from Ann Arbor:
    It is March 26 and there is no signs of any flowers in any way.

    Crocus are common in February.

    Daffodils are common in March.

    Nothing but record annual snowfall with continuous below freezing temperatures.
