It feels like it will never happen. It feels like the snow will never leave. It will never warm up. The garden will never grow. But almost overnight, it happens. It happens so quickly it feels like it happens all at once. The day I took these pictures, the irises had already gone. The lupin, too. The crocuses and daffodils were a distant memory but still, it felt like it all happened at once.
P.S. That cherry was the only one on the tree and it was deeeelicious. We're hoping for a bumper crop next year.
