Welcome Spring


Although it’s been over 80 degrees  and feeling more like summer here for the last few days, I think it is still good to give spring a  formal welcome

 From “Spring” by G. M. Hopkins

NOTHING is so beautiful as spring—

When weeds, in wheels, shoot long and lovely and lush;

Thrush’s eggs look little low heavens, and thrush

Through the echoing timber does so rinse and wring

The ear, it strikes like lightnings to hear him sing;

The glassy peartree leaves and blooms, they brush

The descending blue; that blue is all in a rush

With richness; the racing lambs too have fair their fling.

What is all this juice and all this joy

A strain of the earth’s sweet being in the beginning

In Eden garden

Welcome Spring!

(I wonder what I’ll plant this year?)
