I didn't get to see the green lilacs do anything more than shrivel and sputter out shortly after quite impressive flower buds began to form. The second bunch of branches I brought home however have stirred. A few days ago after doing not much for a week, the dogwood branches sent out some delicate leaves. I've moved them now into the dining room where mounting evidence that spring is round the corner can be found in the amount of light that now slants in from a winter sun that's beginning to raise its head above the neighboring buildings. This glimpse of spring is ironically only available indoors, looking out, its still a cold, dismal snow strewn scene.
