June 16th being Bloomsday, and the spring and summer being a time for gardens to flower, let us write of the blossom. Blooming as it does, the blossom matures and evolves in spring, and into the summer. By June, there are signs of burgeoning fields of florets. It is not just Bloomsday, but Blossom, Dearie, everywhere singing the praises of the season, perhaps even singing out “Once upon a summertime.”
But to return to the subject of the flower in bloom, the blossom, be it a rose, a daffodil (as Ms. Dearie’s record label was called), a carnation or a pom-pom, it is ever welcome.
