Spring

It's beginning to feel like spring in Brooklyn.  So, my thoughts turn to gardening.  The bulbs from last year are starting to come up around our tree pit: daffodils, tulips, and hyacinth.  And the creeping thyme is creeping back. What better inspiration can there be than one's tree pit?  Are the areas around trees along the sidewalks of other towns and cities called 'pits' ?  Or is this a Brooklyn thing?  My gardening is sporadic at best. But I dream a busy garden life.
