"And Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the spirit of love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on earth's dark breast
Rose from the dreams of it's wintry rest.
The snowdrop and then the violet,
Arose from the ground with warm rain wet;
And their breath was mixed with sweet odour sent
From the turf like the voice and the instrument."
The days are longer and the birds are singing. The trees are full of buds promising to amaze us with a splendid profusion of colour and fragrance. It's Spring! For me that means I'll make many visits to my local garden center--
That snail is so adorable. I didn't purchase him then but I think
I might have to go back and scoop him up:-)
Spring reminds me to bring out some of my Spring themed needlework and sometimes encourages me to
Or to take time to listen to the sound of shuttle and loom.
A time to plan for tea gatherings with friends--
A reason to change the kitchen cupboard...
And bring out the bunnies to welcome Easter--
Spring is such a special time of year. A time to refresh and begin again. I hope your Spring celebrations are joyful and long lasting, right into Summer :-)
Many thanks to Kathy for hosting Celebrate Spring with Victoria. Please take a moment to visit her at A Delightsome Life for a wealth of Spring delight.
