Spring arrived only slightly late in Melrose, this year -- but every bit as gloriously. The lone tulip in our garden was the harbinger of vibrant color that was just around the corner. First the forsythias turned our world into a sparkling yellow, then the lilacs blossomed with motled white and purple blooms -- and then the world just seemed to explode into a rainbow of spring. Another summer is just around the corner.
