snowdrops and crocus
It is one of my favorite things to release via the Horticulture program ... the joy of the Earth - the trees, the flowers, the animals.
I found this wonderful poem that I feel explains my feelings about the coming of Spring this year.
When the gloomy gray sky turns to clear azure blue,
And the snow disappears from the ground,
When the birds start to sing, and our moods start to lift,
Then we know Spring is coming around.
When the first flower bulbs poke their heads toward the sun,
Golden daffodils, hyacinths, too;
When the brown grass turns green, and the wildflowers bloom,
Then sweet Spring makes its showy debut.
Once again we awake from cold winter's pale dream,
As our minds and our bodies revive;
We rejoice and delight in spring’s colorful sight;
Each new spring makes us glad we’re alive!
By Joanna Fuchs
Enjoy that the Earth is awakening on the East Coast from a horrible February.
