Our Friend Spring

“See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land…”

 

Song of Solomon 2:11-13

We rushed over to visit a dear old friend yesterday.

Spring! And, oh, she does look so lovely!

So captivating — wearing all those blossoms.

We breathed in her fragrant, flowering magnolia trees.

Her little blue scillas, so dainty and sweet, reminded me of someone else I know.

Her helleborous (Lenten rose) bloomed bravely, though nearly hidden behind a bench and surrounded by crunchy brown leaves.

She introduced us to a host of white daffodils.

Tiny raindrops pearled up on her sunny yellow daffodils.

Her dwarf Dutch irises truly delighted us.

Her apricot trees cheered us.

And her lilacs — oh, they hold great promise for April!
