April may be cruel but still looks and smells great when the magnolia trees sprout blossoms over already glowing forsythia, crocuses, daffodils, hiacinths, and tulips.  Trees, undamaged by a late and brief frost, push out their thousands of buds.  Cherry blossoms start to appear.  It may be barely forty-five degrees, but flowering plants are oblivious while some of us still wear winter coats.  This morning I passed three dogwoods freshly bloomed.  Fortunately, seasons don't depend upon superannuated leaders to guide their progress.
