It's Here At Last
I knew it would come, but I was getting so very impatient. Other people's gardens showed signs of it, but nothing was happening in mine.
But at last I think it has come.
Some of these are from my garden. Some are from my daughter's (which I planted when I owned the house so I sort of still feel the garden is mine - just a little bit).
It can only get better from here on.
It's amazing to me, how much my spirits are lifted by the sight of a few
flowers. I feel it when I see them anywhere, but when they are in my
own garden, it's just the best ever!
Next it will be the flowering almond.
And what I enjoy the most is to find flowers that I have all but forgotten, suddenly springing back to life and surprising me.
The crocuses do that every year. Is it possible
that the squirrels move them around sometimes? Or is it just that I have
a practically non-existent short term memory? In any case, they always come as a nice surprise, showing up where I least expected them.
It's here! Spring has arrived at last!
