The Lady Banks rose is still blooming, after at least two months. Two weeks is more typical for it. Not that I am complaining. It also doesn't usually start blooming in February. We have white and red gladioli blooming, and irises and lilies are blooming still. The blueberry bush is bigger than a shoebox this year and has at least a half a cup of blueberries on it. All in all, an auspicious start.

flowers draw us in
we are trained to provide
food and water
in exchange for the lives
of their unborn children
which we display like trophies
in glass and ceramic receptacles
for reasons they cannot fathom
