Well would you believe it, after me saying how amazing our sunny weekend was and how much I love spring, I then received a message from Julie Sheldon this morning with a new poem she wrote on Sunday evening about the very same thing! I feel so privileged to receive Julie's poems as she writes them, and be able to share them with you all too.
I wrote this last night after such a beautiful weekend.... all of it seen and heard whilst gardening!
Today was the last day of Winter
And oh what a glorious sight!
From glistening frost in the morning....
To blue sky.... then snow moon at night
I spent the whole day in the garden
Absorbing the promise of Spring
Observing the wonders of Nature
From plant life to birds on the wing
A buzzard so high above soaring
Magnificent, wild and so free
A ladybird bright in the sunlight....
The buzz of a brave bumble bee
The love songs of two robins courting
Heads back and displaying their chest
The blue tit inspecting the bird box
In search of a good place to nest
The green spikes of bulbs now emerging
The snowdrops already so bold
A carpet of purple and gold
The sun feeling warm through the branches
Encouraging leaf buds to swell
Tomorrow begins the new season
Today .....in the garden....all's well!
