Thoughts on Springtime in my own Backyard

If spring came 

but once in a century


of once a year, 

or burst forth with the sound

 of an earthquake 

and not in silence, 


wonder and expectation 

there would be 

in all hearts 

to behold 

the miraculous change.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Beautiful lilacs & violets--I have a few lily of the valley in my yard--maybe three or four which is amazing because for the past several years, only the leaves came up with no flowers. My Rhody isn't doing so well--just a few flowers this year. I think it is an every other year deal. Now it's time to buy plants for the front of the house and my porch. The tulips and daffodils are long gone, but they were so pretty.
