We took Mosey for a walk to the lake today. It was nearly fifty degrees and sunny. The smell of earth rose from the ground; the sun made Josh sneeze. This bow was cut from a tree that was about to bloom a few days ago during a warm spell of weather. A friend of a friend cut branches for bloom the day before a snow storm. One was given to me and I put it in a wine glass which I no longer drink wine from and have watched it slowly bloom on my kitchen table.
