Listening to recorder playing opportunity

John Tyson’s student recital will take place on Sunday, June 9
at 7pm or so at Longwood Towers, Brookline. I’ll be playing, and so will some other
good players. If you’re interested in what amateurs can
learn to do with a recorder, it’s a good opportunity to
hear a lot of playing on numerous levels.

First Crocus of Spring

I know lots of people already have lots of more impressive flowers than this. But these bulbs were only planted last fall, and it’s been a difficult March.

My downstairs neighbor and I cleared the weeds out of this part of the front yard last October, and I ordered bulbs. They arrived a couple of days after I broke the ankle, so she and her husband put them in.

I ordered a cheap assortment, because I wasn’t sure whether they would all get eaten by squirrels or rabbits, but they seem to have come up pretty well. There are other buds, so there will be better pictures in a couple of weeks.
