Spring makes its own statement, so loud and clear that the gardener seems to be only one of the instruments, not the composer. ~Geoffrey B. Charlesworth
It is here it is here....Wonderful Spring!!! That time of the year when the cold winter that has held us hostage is being defeated by the warm sun. The time of the year when new life springs from the ground and and the birds nest in the new foliage of the trees; so that their song can be shared with all who listen. Spring is the season where hopeful gardeners dream of the harvest to come. The refreshing comes and the new hope fills the air with it's perfume.
Who can not love spring and all that is symbolizes??
The sleeping occupants of the earth are awake again, ready to entertain the humans who think they own the earth (silly humans...it is only on loan, so treat it well!!). The bare arms of the trees are clothed again in their beautiful leaves and the brown carpet of grass turns to a brilliant green dotted with bits of yellow and lavender.
Perhaps I am romanticizing this glorious season but what is life with out a little romance.......winter????
