Garden Bloggers' Muse Day

I wonder if Carolyn will think it's a-Muse-ing if I create a "Muse Day" post?

After all, it was Carolyn that began Muse Day as a sweet meme commemorating the beginning of each month of the year.  Now that she's no longer author of Sweet Home and Garden Chicago, but
perhaps she'd like to know her Muse Day (sometimes) continues!

Wearing of the Green

It ought to come in April,
or, better yet, in May
when everything is green as green ---
I mean St. Patrick's Day.

With still a week of winter
this wearing of the green
seems rather out of season ---
it's rushing things, I mean.

But maybe March is better
when all is done and said:
St. Patrick brings a promise,
a four-leaf-clover promise,
a green-all-over promise
of springtime just ahead!

by Aileen Fisher

Looking forward to a little Green . . . 
but thankful for the precipitation we've received lately!

Yes green. The creeks and ponds are very very low around here and the forecast of lotsa snow will be appreciated by all of us looking forwarde to some green. Gareners and farmers both...:)

So hoping to see more green waiting for a taste of spring.


Hi Shady, I love the dancing clovers and the cute poem to go with it. I suppose St. Patrick's Day is a nice way of saying, hang in there, spring is coming. I like that.

Hello Blogging Friends! Yes, we're waiting for the green, but in the meanwhile our forecast is for more "white!" It happens that way sometimes. No matter what, the temps are warmer and the snow is wetter and it makes everyone (gardeners and Farmers!) happier. :-)

Hi Sue! I understand and am about ready, myself! :-)
