Happy springtime!

She turned to the sunlight
    And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbor:
    “Winter is dead.”

And snowdrops and crocuses grow,

Relish the feast

For meanwhile back east

Toronto is knee-deep in snow”

    I love spring because I can get out and walk and finally start gardening. However, snow is predicted for this week-end!! Life in Nebraska.

    I love spring because of its sparkling colours of the dazzling blooms and the vibrancy of life that fills the air.

    Not quite springtime here (more like the winter that won’t quit) but I too love the spring, esp the return of spring songbirds. 🙂 Thanks for the visual reminders here.
