I'm going to name the almond tree Little Engine (children's book, "The Little Engine That Could"). It probably has the worst timing in the world, but, by golly, it's going to bloom regardless. There are clumps of traveling daffodils putting out buds now, too. None of the daffys are where I planted the bulbs. I've not been able to figure out how and why they migrate, but it's kind of fun to see where they'll show up each year.
With little else to do yesterday, I watched "Gran Torino" (2008, Clint Eastwood, Bee Vang) and "Quigley Down Under" (1990, Tom Selleck, Laura San Giacomo, Alan Rickman), both movies having to do with tolerance. There are worse ways to spend a rainy day.
