I think the loveliest time of the year is the Spring! Don't you? Of course you do.
It is snowing all over my flowers. I'm so sad! These purple tulips were on the verge of blooming yesterday. I was just thinking sadly that I might miss their blooms while I'm on the road -- now I am thinking sadly that they may not bloom at all.
Most of my daffodils are collapsed, splayed awkwardly against the ground, the snow pressing their heavy heads into the grass like a pinned wrestler. These ones are still standing only because they are poking through a fence which is supporting them.
My cherry tree was looking amazing on friday, spectacularly garbed in hundreds of pink blooms! Well it's still blooming, just covered in snow now. I will admit that the white-on-light-pink is very pretty, and I took lots of pictures of my lovely tree. (Yay for a camera with a timer, so I could capture the full effect of the snow falling past my black jacket.) But still... all this snow just doesn't seem right. It's spring, darnit! Or at least it was.
