Three Cheers: It's Spring!


Officially, it is Spring. Here is a sweet super market bouquet for you along with an Emily Dickinson poem.  While today was warm and wonderful, the weather lady predicts cold and snow for the week end. So much for working out in the yard. I hope you had a delightful day celebrating the changing of the season.

A Light exists in Spring
Not present on the Year
At any other period —
When March is scarcely here

A Color stands abroad
On Solitary Fields
That Science cannot overtake
But Human Nature feels.

It waits upon the Lawn,
It shows the furthest Tree
Upon the furthest Slope you know
It almost speaks to you.

Then as Horizons step
Or Noons report away
Without the Formula of sound
It passes and we stay —

A quality of loss
Affecting our Content
AsTrade had suddenly encroached
Upon a Sacrament.

Emily Dickinson

Have you noticed that white pitchers are in this season. They are turning up all over Pinterest and the decorating and gardening magazines. I found this one at ARC. Cheap. $5.99 and the little candy dish or sugar bowl. I do need to stay out of thrift stores.

Happy Spring.
