An Ode to March 4th

These photos were taken March 23, 2007.

March Forth

And so we shall!

The sun is shining.
(o'er your way?)

Patches of green are showing
through snow today.

Birds are fluttering.
(Saw a robin, yesterday!)

And I am dreaming
Spring will soon stay.

March forth!
And so we shall.

;-)

I am glad to have found your blog thru Blotanical. I am also zone 5, but over east in New England (Mass). Look forward to checking in on your blog as Spring emerges. Stop by for a visit!

Crocus & Scilla blooming - yay! Those Crocus look like my Princess Beatrix Crocuses; are they? I think I like this poem even more than the Frost poem you posted for Muse Day.

Hi and Welcome, Carol! I will visit soon. :-)

MMD, I'm afraid I don't know what these crocus are. They are beautiful, though! Aren't we getting anxious to see them again soon???
Thanks for the comment about the poem. I just made it up. ;-)

These are gorgeous little crocuses and I like the poem that goes with them. I have been enjoying reading your comments on Deb's blog as well.

Hey! Where's your snow and ice? You are such a lucky girl to be witnessing spring in action. I have a bit of waiting time left unfortunately. Thank you for posting pictures of your lovely crocuses. Seeing your spring blooms gives me hope that I'll see mine soon too.

Kate,
I'm glad to have you visit. :-) I enjoy reading others' comments, too. We get to know each other in so many ways...

2 green thumbs up,
Our snow is nearly all gone. But it remains cold here. Unfortunately (?) these are last year's blossoms, but I know where they hide and I'm watching for them every day! ;-)

Shady - I just love the surprise of a crocus poking its way through the leaf litter, letting us know that spring is nigh. A fitting ode... Deb

Shady Gardener said...

Deb,
I do too! And aren't we ready for that excitement? ;-)
