The first thing I read this morning was Kelly Rossiter's lovely post on Planet Green. I thank her for reminding me to use my hearing -- not just sight, smell, taste and touch -- to experience the Spring garden. And not feel strange about going out in the middle of the night to witness the remarkable.
