Spring has finally come, and for many of us in the US, we’re ecstatic. This winter has been brutal and unwilling to retreat to make room for the glorious season of spring. 🙂
In honor of this season, I’d like to share one of my favorite poems with you.
I absolutely love the imagery and the language he uses. My favorite words are mud-luscious and puddle wonderful. They make you think of standing barefoot in a mud puddle, letting the soft brown dirt squish between your toes. So gross and yet so delightful.
Spring also brings my favorite flowers…Lilacs and Hyacinths. It’s not just the clustered purple beauty of these flowers that draws me, it’s their overwhelming fragrance. It makes my heart soar when I pass the garden and catch their sweet scent on the breeze. Here are some pictures from my own garden when I lived in Kentucky a few years ago. I was THRILLED to actually have found a WHITE hyacinth. 🙂 Aren’t they gorgeous?
I’ve also included a few other pictures from my garden for you to enjoy. (Yes, these are my own personal photos.)
Happy Spring everyone!
