i'm glad you're blooming in the backyard. shining in the night. the hot nights and the cold ones. i hope your first spring bloom lasts longer than it did last year.
first rose photo this year is a no flash nighttime one! i like how you almost can't see it. and how gold it looks.
jeff sent me this link. it put me in a trance.
as did listening to the pultizer prize winner for poetry, william stanley merwin, reading his poems on fresh air.
