Spring arrived so suddenly you might have missed its coming if you had the 24-hour flu. Almost overnight the world has gone from a monochromatic brown to a palette of delicate greens and pinks, vivid yellow and purples.
In the course of just a few hours on Sunday, daffodils changed from tight buds into full blossoms. The warm sunshine and gentle wind offered perfect enticements to plunk down on a patch of grass and watch the transformation. No need for time-lapse photography; things were moving too quickly. No need to explain your peculiar inactivity; after all, it's spring.
