There are little red crumbly things all over my deck and chairs this morning. These crumbly bits of tree buds are a mess and their accompanying pollen is probably the cause of my daughter’s asthma Fiesta the last week or more. Boo. However, the rain softened them and they let go, uncapping tiny infant green points of leaf reminding me that really, there is magic in the world. Science…pollination, germination, creation, magic. And wild turkeys eating the bird seed from under the feeder. I think we’re all going to make it.
