Jonquils

Here's where I'm hangin' this spring. Finally, most of the yard and garden birdhouses are cleaned and back up waiting for spring occupancy. Well, there is one sitting on the wood stove that needs an artist's 'touch'. Other then that though, we're ready to go. When I was up rototilling a week or so ago, there was already some 'action' in a few of the garden houses. Jonquils, for me, are such a hopeful flower of early spring. They lined the driveway on Washington Avenue, and before I went to the bus stop each kindergarten morning, I made sure to check them out. I was startled! Such perfection rises from dirt?

  6. It is beautiful, Birdman. In southern New England, the jonquils and other daffodils are past and we have almost finished the run of tulips, too. On to peonies!

  15. Birdman -- Like your composition! Your words were delightful. I used to walk past my neighbors on the way to school and pick lilacs off their huge bush -- giving them to my teacher when I arrived.

  17. Every living thing does, including us. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, and I suppose you could add dirt to dirt. Organic chemistry is full of magic.
