A Song of Spring

 "Oh don't you wish that you could hear them ring.
That can happen only when the fairies sing!"
Old English ditty
 
 "Spring unlocks the flowers to paint the laughing soil"
Reginald Herier
 
 "I love Spring anywhere but if I could choose,
I would always greet it in the garden."
Ruth Stout
 
No longer brown and barren my woodlands have
greened up bringing life to the gardens!
Ferns sprouting everywhere! Early bloomers like
Solomen's seal creamy white bell shaped flowers
dance under the stems! 
*look up, way way up at the 1st two photos
 
How can we not be full of Joy with new life, fresh scents,
sunshine, and a new growing season upon us!
 frost warnings..  Gulp.. we've had a few this weekend!
Wishing you all a fantastic gardening season!

Isn't it odd how I feel just the same as you except that here it is autumn. with a little rain, nature reawakens, even my spring bulbs are popping up all over the place.
Lovely Solomon's seal and the verdure around you.

Hello Anna. All the rain we've had has really greened things up here. It's so lush and beautiful! I like the solomon's seal plant with it's creamy blooms. There is a frost warning for us tonight too. I hope to do some planting tomorrow though. I have a few bought but have to buy soil today. Happy Gardening to you! Pamela

We are seeing new blossoms in our yard each day. Hopefully we've now seen the last of our frost warnings.

St. Francis (?) is my favourite shot. So tranquil and nurturing. Spring is a wonderful time of year. A promise of new beginnings. Hugs, twt

Those creamy bell-shaped flowers are so lovely, and yes, I would love to hear them ring. Do fairies ever sing? I will listen more closely when I am near a garden. In my yard, I have only a few beautiful hibiscus and lots of jasmine, but the scent is luscious, day and night!

Hi Anna, Spring comes and goes this year doesn't it!
Still, your garden is blooming and adding colour to your life, so it can't be all cold and grey!
Love your garden art!
hugs

Just beautiful! I've not had an opportunity to walk through the woods to the swamp. I have lots of new things to get planting - bleeding hearts and butterfly bushes.

A nice intro into Spring.
I really like the idea of the bell-flowers making sound. Could be
inspiration for a poem.
