Being a child of Spring, to celebrate this beautiful season here on this blog is a must… and such a pleasure! Sooooo…. here’s a few things that filled my heart with joy the past few days… Enjoy! 🙂

 


 Spring
 Poem by Gerard Manley 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. – Have, get, before it cloy,
 Before it cloud, Christ, lord, and sour with sinning,
 Innocent mind and Mayday in girl and boy,
 Most, O maid’s child, thy choice and worthy the winning.

Spring Is in the Air

Yesterday afternoon caught me wondering when the real spring was coming.

After the long, cold winter the weather is becoming slightly milder around here where I live, and the days are significantly longer then they were just a while ago.

Which leaves me feeling like dancing on clouds.

But I want more, I need more, that’s just not enough for me…

My curiousness became so unbearable it made me go outside and perform some serious investigation.

After certain difficulties involving wading through mud and things I’d rather left unspoken I found this…

A CLEAR EVIDENCE… see?

Please, feel free to express your gratitude in e-mails because this is some important research indeed.

Wonderful buds… they will soon be bursting with unbelievable amounts of life.

Of course, I will be posting the pictures of these trees in bloom as soon as it all happens.

Because there is nothing like a cherry tree dressed in white.

At least I think so…
