1 It has been a beautiful Spring day today and I ventured out into the garden. The sunlight was shining through the white Narcissi.
2 There were still raindrops held between the newly sprouted leaves of the Aquilega and, if you click to enlarge and then zoom in, you’ll see the reflection of the trellis work. There’s also a tiny string of raindrops just behind the main drop and the new leaves have a delicate furriness.
Aquilega and raindrop
3 My lovely sister-in-law reminded me of a poem that just shouts ‘Spring has sprung’ and here it is –
in Just by e e cummings
spring when the world is mud-
luscious the little
whistles far and wee
and eddieandbill come
running from marbles and
piracies and it’s
when the world is puddle-wonderful
old balloonman whistles
far and wee
and bettyandisbel come dancing
from hop-scotch and jump-rope and
I love it! Spring and the essence of childhood – just glorious!
