Whose birthday am I celebrating by a road less traveled?

March 26, 2012

Happy Birthday to Robert Frost, born March 26, 1874.

Spring Pools

These pools that, though in forests, still reflect
The total sky almost without defect,
And like the flowers beside them, chill and shiver,
Will like the flowers beside them soon be gone,
And yet not out by any brook or river,
But up by roots to bring dark foliage on.

The trees that have it in their pent-up buds
To darken nature and be summer woods —
Let them think twice before they use their powers
To blot out and drink up and sweep away
These flowery waters and these watery flowers
From snow that melted only yesterday.


What did I find in my garden?

March 20, 2012

It was a busy week last week, what with all the looting and pillaging I had to take care of.  I did, however, take time for a walk around the garden and I found these little white crocuses blooming. The first indication of spring returning.  This week the temperatures have been in the eighties and the bulbs are blooming all over the place.  Lovely to see and not typical for March in Cleveland.  Happy Spring.
