All my neighbors' trees and bushes are in full bloom, but my crab apple trees have nary a bud or blossom on them. I wonder why? Perhaps it's too early or perhaps I should sing to each one. Or maybe move to Paris?
“April in Paris, chestnuts in blossom, holiday tables under the trees.”
E. Y. Harburg quotes (American Lyricist, Librettist and Song Writer, 1896-1981)
