"The spring is coming by a many signs..."
We're glad for smattering signs of Spring around here -- warmer temperatures, longer daylight hours, chickadee songs changing, a few Canada geese flying overhead, and the welcome traces of brown lawns edging out from melting snow mounds. No signs of life as yet in our garden. So we take sweet pleasure in the pots of yellow tulips sitting in the front window and the colourful posies a dear friend brought to me from the Farmers' Market.
"No winter lasts forever. No spring skips its turn."
the flowers learn their colored shapes."
"I love tulips better than any other spring flower;
they are the embodiment of alert cheerfulness and tidy grace."

"Every spring is the only spring -- a perpetual astonishment."
