Sowing tomatoes, blackbird, shining branches

Sowing two types of tomato in the greenhouse: one variety, a large one, of the sort which supermarkets call beefsteak, is yclept Brandywine; the other, which produces tresses of small tomato, is Loveheart(Cutie).

A blackbird attempts to pre-empt the Spring. Its thin, uncertain song, as it sits in a holly tree, is not convincing.

The sunlight glints on the damp, black branches of the trees in the Grove.
