Enjoying First Sign of Spring After Long, Hard Winter

I realize this is probably of little interest to the blogging community and my readership. Still, this winter sucked and I'm glad to see my perennial friends the snowdrops make their annual return, this time without having to push their heads up above the snow. If anyone else feels the same way, enjoy. It's an early sign that spring's renewal is on the way ... and I'm glad.

Awake, thou wintry earth -
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!
~Thomas Blackburn, "An Easter Hymn"

AND ...

Spring is nature's way of saying, "Let's party!"  ~Robin Williams

This post is dedicated to my mother and grandmothers, all of whom loved their gardens and all of whom have moved on to a very special renewal ...
