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'

More April musing can be perused over at Sweet Home and Garden Chicago.


  1. Lovely photo and prose.
    Happy spring!

  2. How lovely, Anna. Happy April Garden Bloggers' Muse Day :) May spring surround you in beauty.

  3. Is that really a violet? Love the shade of purple and the yellow!

  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.
