Quirky, Praxis and Blooms

I'm hoping this post finds you closer to all things that bloom.

It's a color explosion!

With spring abloom in many backyards, and kitchens and dining room tables and such-

and April Fool's Day is in a race with
crocus blossoms
and rabbits dancing in puddles of paint supplies
up to their long ears and all of eyes
on every rabbit hole,
fireplace mantel 
from here to the open forest.

even before St. Patrick's Day has bloomed-

What's happening in your immediate world?

All Things Quirky
and Praxis

Baby's First Harley

"Who knows if the moon's 
a balloon, coming out of a keen city 
in the sky--filled with pretty people?
(and if you and I should 

get into it, if they 
should take me and take you into their balloon, 
why then
we'd go up higher with all the pretty people

than houses and steeples and clouds:
go sailing
away and away and sailing into a keen
city which nobody's ever visited, where

Spring) and everyone's
 in love and flowers pick themselves." - E.E. Cummings

Nice flowers! My tulips are up but just peeking out of the ground.

Very pretty flowers! My azaleas and daffodils are blooming and it got up to 82 degrees here today. That truck is very interesting!

That truck kind of looked like something from the Cao Dai religion of Vietnam

Love it. Colour is starting to show, but it's struggling a little. Ever read "The Moon's a Balloon" by David Niven? - it's hilarious, and interesting.

'Praxis' is the name of a large Dutch DIY retail chain. Its HQ is located in Amsterdam. That's where I work! So for me it is strange seeing 'Praxis' being used in another context.
