Escape!: Into the Nursery
An hour on the parking meter. Hardly enough time for my escape. To lose myself among the blooming helleborus, the deer fern, the little four-inch thymus to plant between the flagstones. The festuca glauca, shining blue-green mini-grasses; the pink-white cherry blooms, the cyclamen, white, red, pink, their heart-shaped marbled leaves. I am an escapee to the bloom, the leafing-out of spring. I dare you to find me!
