Into the Woods

Woodland path in Sherborn, Massachusetts

The woods are greening up ─ and fast. The rate of growth is about three weeks ahead of schedule with lilacs ready to bloom any day now (they normally bloom here around mid-May). All this accelerated growth has been accompanied by sky-high pollen levels, but cooler weather has brought a much needed respite for the allergy-afflicted, myself included. For me, there is no better tonic than a walk in the woods.
