Winter's on the Wing: A Wordless (almost) Wednesday Post


            Things have been pretty crazy around here lately. The Secret Garden opens three weeks from Friday. So I haven’t done much writing lately. Actually, that’s not entirely true. I’m still getting up early every day to write in my journal. But journal entries are mostly incoherent rants, observations and to do lists. Some of what I write in the morning turns into blog posts…eventually. But about 98% isn’t fit to share and for the moment I don’t have much time to polish my words into blog posts. So today, I’m stealing borrowing an idea I’ve seen on a number of blogs. May I present, my very first Wordless (almost!) Wednesday, accompanied by lyrics from (surprise, surprise!) The Secret Garden.

It doesn't look like much, but the first sign of a crocus means Spring is on the way!

Clusters of crocus,
Purple and Gold.
Blankets of pansies,
Up from the cold.
Lilies and iris,
Safe from the chill.
Safe in my garden,
Snowdrops so still.
