It fills the rocky hill outside the window. Where there has been such little growth so far, a smoldering blaze of flowers all contained in frightening thorny branches.
The sun warms the flowers so that their sweetest coconut scent fills the fields. For the first time in weeks there is promise and hope of spring. It restores and revives.
And I bask in it!
(Thanks to all of you who correctly proposed coconut instead of almond!!)
