So, Mom was asking me the other day if Spring was "late" this year because everything still seemed to be so bare. I didn't think so, but I was wrong.
Last year at this time I took these pictures.
The daffodils don't even have buds on them yet. Spring, where are you?
Awake, thou wintry earth -Fling off thy sadness!Fair vernal flowers, laugh forthYour ancient gladness!
~Thomas Blackburn, "An Easter Hymn"
