Garden Bloggers' Muse Day ~ April 2011




'I come, I come, ye have called me long
I come o'er the mountains, with light and song.
You may trace my step o'er the wakening earth,
By the winds which tell of the violet's birth,
By the primrose - stars in the shadowy grass
By the green leaves opening as I pass'



~ Felicia Hemans, 1749- 1835,  an extract from 'The Voice of Spring'

  4. What an unusual and prettily understated primula matched with such a perfect verse. Thank you - this is a poetess new to me.

  5. Lovely, Anna! I do feel that spring is finally coming here, too. It's exciting to see something new budding in the garden each day.
