“See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land…”
Song of Solomon 2:11-13
We rushed over to visit a dear old friend yesterday.
Spring! And, oh, she does look so lovely!
So captivating — wearing all those blossoms.
We breathed in her fragrant, flowering magnolia trees.
Her little blue scillas, so dainty and sweet, reminded me of someone else I know.
Her helleborous (Lenten rose) bloomed bravely, though nearly hidden behind a bench and surrounded by crunchy brown leaves.
She introduced us to a host of white daffodils.
Tiny raindrops pearled up on her sunny yellow daffodils.
Her dwarf Dutch irises truly delighted us.
Her apricot trees cheered us.
And her lilacs — oh, they hold great promise for April!
