The gladioli in the front yard are flourishing, the sourgrass is blooming, and there will soon be daisies. Despite having bloomed in January, the azaleas are putting out a few small blossoms as well. The gardenia doesn't look ready to bloom, though. That's the one I'm waiting for. A whiff of gardenia really brings a touch of the exotic to a mild spring night.
Only four more days until the eclipse! I'm getting impatient. The weather report is now saying it will be partly cloudy on Monday night. A little bit of cloud I wouldn't mind. The moon always looks better when it has a bit of cloud to illuminate. It would be interesting to see the moon turning some clouds red, too. But I'll be quite annoyed if the clouds are so heavy that I don't get to see the eclipse.
