Four-paneled screen, gift from Sweetcakes
Harshness vanished. A sudden softness
has replaced the meadows' wintry grey.
Little rivulets of water changed
their singing accents. Tendernesses,
hesitantly, reach toward the earth
from space, and country lanes are showing
these unexpected subtle risings
that find expression in the empty trees.
~Rainer Maria Rilke
Does anyone know the name of this flowering bush? It's been blooming for a few weeks.
Daffodils and lettuce on the balcony. Some neighboring daffodils have begun to bloom in the past few days.
The heather is coming into lushness
