flotsam

Unseasonable 

The ornamental plum out front is starting to bloom. Tiny bunches of soft pink petals bloom at the heretofore sun-kissed extremities. They are an extra pop of color in the gray of this rainy morning. 

I regret to inform my poor tree (and you as well, dear reader) that in scant hours this rain will be snow. 

And here I thought we might get away with no winter at all.
