Spring 's a'Comin'

"Come, gentle Spring! Ethereal Mildness! Come."- James Thomson

It is hard to believe that there was 8 inches of snow on the ground a week ago and today the thermometer is pushing 80. Yesterday morning when I returned from prayer meeting I saw the daffodils beginning to peek at me. Then the temps climbed into the mid-eighties!

Today they are much perkier!

At church this morning I saw there pretty smiling faces....
and the trees were bursting forth!
When we got home from church the forsythia was breaking out as well!
"An altered look about the hills;
A Tyrian light the village fills;
A wider sunrise in the dawn;
A deeper twilight on the lawn;
A print of a vermilion foot;
A purple finger on the slope;
A flippant fly upon the pane;
A spider at his trade again;
An added strut in chanticleer;
A flower expected everywhere ..."
- Emily Dickinson


  1. Love the poem by Emily Dickenson! My mom back in Canada was getting snow today. It's been very springlike here this past week. I just love spring in England! It's so green and beautiful!

  2. I love the poem and I think while I will miss winter I am ready for spring. The daffodils are so sweet.

    Have a wonderful Sunday

  3. Delightful darlings in your gardens. My garden has been dancing in daffodils for some time now. Yesterday I espied camellias in full bloom and the first hints of saucer magnolia blooms. I love spring! : D


Your comments are a huge blessing and encouragement to me~
