Musing In March

"All Nature seems at work. Slugs leave their lair
The bees are stirring, birds are on the wing,
And Winter slumbering in the open air,
Wears on his smiling face a dream of spring."
Illustration by Lena Anderson.


  1. Oh, what a lovely illustration. I'm dreaming of spring too, we've just had a snowstorm here and everywhere is covered in white, I'm hoping that it doesn't last.

  2. Delightful Anna - a very mixed weather day today , snow, sleet, bright sun, gusty winds. March in like a lion!

  3. What a smiley happy gardener she is. I am dreaming of spring too Anna.

  4. Lovely illustration, I can't imagine living somewhere that didn't have the expectant joy of spring.

  5. Perfect, although it is yet another dull grey cool day here today. No rain though, so I may be able to squeeze some weeding in around the work!

  6. What lovely words! (Apart from the bit about the slugs, which I don't really want to see yet!) I am itching to get started clearing up the winter debris, but spring is still a couple of weeks off so I must be patient.
