I know these from my garden books as Wallflowers, but
from a favorite childhood storybook,
I know them as Gilly Flowers.
There was a mention of a buttery yellow,
fragrant early spring flower that always bloomed beneath
the window sill at the same time the birds began to build their nests.
It was an early hint at what lay in store for me
in the Garden.
We have a dozen fat pots of them waiting to be scooped up.
