It’s always amazing to me that a city as grey as Toronto ever turns green. But it does. Every year. A garden that’s looked dead for months, suddenly comes to life. This is the time of year, when surprises spring up in our garden. Dormant fritillaria and hidden Irises. Today, a red tulip appeared that I’ve never seen before. Alongside everything else that’s starting to bloom, these flowers feel like gifts. Close to my children’s school, there’s a tree planted with a plaque that reads, “where the grey light meets the green air.” It’s dedicated to Dianthus & Bear. In my mind, it conjures hope and possibility. Much like Spring.
