I took this photo last May of a pincushion flower just budding. It's now mid March so we don't have any flowers blooming here quite yet, but there is the promise of flowers and spring coming soon and I am ready.
Even though I love winter, I always get anxious for spring as it approaches. I've photographed snow and gloomy days all winter and I have to say that I'm ready for COLOR and FLOWERS and all that comes with spring. I'm even ready for warmer weather, since my recent frostbite has pretty much brought a halt to my time in the field in this freezing cold weather.
So, I welcome spring with a poem I wrote...
"Welcome Happy Spring"
The cold and chill of winter's frost,
as snowflakes melt will soon be lost.
Winter days are almost done,
the subtle signs of spring have come.
As the sun begins to warm the ground,
and heats the earth newness abounds.
A bud, a blade, a robin's song,
all tell us now it won't be long.
Warm days ahead the cold behind,
blue skies filled with sunshine.
All tell us winter's 'bout come and gone,
Welcome Happy Spring!
