My favorite spring flower since childhood, especially when combined in a nosegay with lillies-of-the-valley. The latter are not in evidence yet in this our late and sad spring.

week 603 ~ violets poke through dead leaves

leave a comment »

violets poke through dead leaves
the optimism of spring still
astounds us as the whole world grieves
violets poke through dead leaves
a wistful soul dreaming perceives
this harbinger of summer’s will
violets poke through dead leaves
the optimism of spring still

The heavenly aroma of verbena scents the air these days.

Cinco de Maio AND Taco Tuesday on the same day?!? Sadly I am not prepared for a Mexican celebration at home. But my grandboy adds to my historical knowledge of the holiday– it celebrates a Mexican miilitary victory over the French. My son, living in France, finally understands why there are no celebrations in his adopted country.

A lovely bloom from my shade garden. My great delight on sunny evenings these days is to take my book and my cocktail out to the yard to enjoy a relaxing escape from the tension in which I hold myself in these days of fearing the worst at all times.
