melt

not a cheese melt. snow melt. puddles. pools and ponds. rain and warmer temperatures reduce the snow. snowdrops the flower were blooming. the moss is green and glowing. other spring bulbs are sending up green spikes. spring is not here. neither by the equinox nor the calendar. and the plants do not care. they are quite indifferent to our rules and time tables. and while the snow and cooler temps might reappear winter will give way eventually…

    Here in my neck of the woods? That is called ‘false spring’ and I’ve learned to never await blossoms from anything that shoots up before Memorial Day – LOL – but yes, I’ve also learned, Spring Hope springs eternal here – from October through June – overall? The hope of the Colorado gardening soul’s heart is, to me, one of the greatest testaments to ‘love, faith and hope’ – that exists (and elsewhere to – but heck, everyone makes fun of Colorado weather and I don’t mind poking fun at ourselves, too – )

    It is, however, so very sad, to break the news as gently as we can, to the newcomer who is just devastated that their gardening gung-ho activities in March/April required at least 4 replantings before June arrived – and that they may lose the crop before September arrives – sigh – it’s always so sad – we all hold a wake to keen and mourn right along with the new comer – cuz it helps us too – for all the years we were told to ‘get tough and get used to it’ and cried ourselves to sleep, yet again…. 😀

      Shirley you know – Who is on first. And yesterday was a perfect day for baseball. If you don’t have to slide. Or get the mud out of your cleats. Thanks John. We can get to the rest of the song during the seventh inning streach.

    An early spring, indeed. We are a bit sad that the snow is gone. But for us at the coast, the spring always comes (too) early.
    Thanks for sharing your perfect pictures of the flowers
