on the roundabout

Saturday, May 17, 2014:
There are three inches of rain in the rain gauge, and a frost advisory for tonight. The forsythia, violets, and trillium were scarce after the long, cold and icy winter; tent worms are thick in the wild cherry trees, but the dwarf apple trees in the yard, which have always suffered from spider mites, are clean this May without any oil spray. It is a law of Nature, maybe, that for every reduction there is somewhere an increase; when the livestock die the flies flourish; what you lose on the coconut shies you make up on the roundabout. Weather is, in any case, always original.
