Spring is in the air

 
The sun was warm but the wind was chill.
You know how it is with an April day
 
When the sun is out and the wind is still,
You're one month on in the middle of May.


But if you so much as dare to speak,
A cloud comes over the sunlit arch,
 
A wind comes off a frozen peak,
And you're two months back in the middle of March.
 



The sun has been gracious this week - spring is in the air! I was priviledged to visit a "forest kindergarten" this week - the sun rays caressed my cheeks as I bicycled the rest of the narrow road to the old farm.

I took these snapshots along the way ...
A scrumped red berry hang all alone in the bush - it has survived the frost and the snow, without being eaten by the birds og squirrels ...
The ice on the lake is smelting, there's only a few spots of snow here and there under the trees...

The spring awakens my desire to be creative - to craft with bright, colorful papers and materials to bring about a new breath of life inside the house as well.


I look forward of crafting some small Easter decorations this weekend ...
Hopefully a walk at the Bernstroff Palace Gardens - maybe to find some more buds in the bushes and trees?!

 
A warm welcome to my new blogger friend & follower Crystal!

    1. Thank you so much ... The first buds in the spring somehow are fragile, at the same time containing the possibilities and all that it takes to develop and grow ...I'm also fond of Robert Frost's poems ... there's something about them!

  8. I've never heard that quote from Robert Frost - but so true. Great glimpses into your neck of the woods coming into Spring season.

  9. Great poem. We too had warmer temps but a frigid breeze yesterday. I did hear the temps will be warmer today and the sun will be shining. I must get out with the camera today!
