Garden Bloggers Muse Day ~ December 2010.



" I heard a bird sing
  A magical thing
  And sweet to remember.

  We are nearer to spring
  Than we were in September,
  I heard a bird sing
  In the dark of December'

~ Oliver Herford, 1863 -1935 - ' I Heard A Bird Sing'

You can mull over more December muses over at Sweet Home and Garden Chicago kindly hosted each month by Carolyn Choi.

  1. Very lovely words and photo of your primrose. It is a good way to think . . . we are closer to spring than in September.

  3. That's a good way to look at it, spring being closer now than it was in September. What a gorgeous coloured primrose.

  4. I love this choice of poem, Anna! When we've over 2 feet of snow, (which is very beautiful!) it's still good to know that each day we are closer to spring!!

  5. A very comforting thought, Anna--as the temperature dips lower and lower here, I will remember that it's only a few short months until spring, and I'll see some primroses in my garden, too. I've seen reports of all the snow in the UK--I hope you're staying warm!

  7. Hi Anna, A lovely poem with an incredible double primrose - that's a rarity here. Thanks again for the catching the Van Dyke error! Hope you're staying warm and snug too.

  8. Hi Anna, A very heartening poem for the dark of December here in the great white north where it is dark when I leave and dark when I return. That's why I get out nearly everyday for a noon walk. Must have sun!

    Of course, pretty beeswax candles and a glass of wine with hubby in the evening helps too. :)
