Fling off thy sadness!

Spring is coming...

I feel it in the soft air, see it in the tiny greening buds, hear it in the raucous calls of returning geese as they lumber across the sky...

I'm ready.

Awake, thou wintry earth -
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!

Oh and I´m ready too, even though we CAN get used to the low temperatures, I think. Even inside of the house, I´m wearing thermopants and woolen knitted sweaters and socks! In fact a bit cosy I admit... but still, we want some spring, don´t we?

Thanks for taking time to make such nice comments on my blog Susan!

Hugs Helle

We had some really nice weather for a few days and it was wonderful. My iris are starting to show a bit.
