Spring Is Here (by Rachel)

Spring has come and every flower is blooming.
The grape hyacinth is in clusters here and there,

and the wild buttercups give a sweet odor to the spring air.

Though the days can be dull and gray, the blossoms stay and do not wilt.

Picking a bouquet for the dining room table creates a beautiful scene.

A cup of tea and a book to read can make a cold, gray spring day quite pleasant.

If rain comes and stays till late afternoon, and then if the sun comes out at that time, the trees with their new leaves make the back yard look like a painting with a green light that makes it look like life has burst out all at once.

Very soon, the bleeding hearts will come and add more beauty to the front garden even though there is no evidence of it yet. Some things are not as they seem to be, like the roses; all leaves at the moment, but come summer they will be covered with white, pink, and red roses.

I love spring, because it is the time of year
when every thing has a new beginning.

Oh so true! Like the new day, Spring holds such promise as it bursts forth from winter's hibernation. This was such a cold and long winter (relatively speaking), we are rejoicing in all the new life and color.

Have a blessed Easter weekend.
