Rooftop | first snow, then spring

March 15, 2012

A month ago the light polluted rooftop swirled with snow and cloud.  The next day lumps of ice were left sitting heavy on plants, their bowed leaves holding crystalised melt water that gleamed like cut glass.  The sun was cold and low and golden.  And now it is spring.  The potatoes have been duly chitted and planted out in old fabric shopping bags.  The winter lettuces look polished and ready to eat.  Bulbs are starting to bloom, in egg yellow and striped pink.
