Happy Patriots’ Day!

Things I learned today: Patriots’ Day is not, in fact, designed solely to allow the Boston marathon to take place on a holiday.  Rather, it celebrates the battles of Lexington and Concord (April 19, 1775).  Apparently, it’s a state holiday in Massachusetts, Maine, and maybe-sort-of Wisconsin (NB: not New Hampshire).

Magnolias, forsythia, daffodils, cherry trees (or other roses; I don’t remember how to distinguish a cherry from an apple, except by taste), willows, maples, several invasive ground covers, an azalea and a few tulips are in flower.  I am never sure in my neighborhood when the tulips are legit or when they have been stuck in the ground already flowering by a yard service.  But everything was looking quite colorful and lovely.
