Life is short. Make it amazing.  ~Hugh MacLeod 


Springtime, and life
returns in a green haze of leafbuds. The seasonal burst of life is
lived, but the surprise of the splashy daffodils will make
all the more amazing.

  1. Where are the daffodils? Where is the crocus? When will the forsythia bloom? I appreciate your poem of hope as I look out the window at another morning of snow.

    1. It was kind of ironic to post this today...after MORE snow!! But I wrote it driving through eastern Kansas where there WAS a green haze of leafbuds and Topeka WAS bursting with forsythia!

  2. You have captured how I feel about daffodils in the spring! My absolute favorite. We had daffodils and even some lovely red tulips yesterday, but then we had snow and sleet and ice and the coldest opening day in Rockies history (26 degrees at the first pitch) yesterday. Brrr!

  3. Yes! I often feel grateful to live in a place with four distinct seasons. It lets me enjoy each one for its moment. Daffodils! Strawberries! Cider! Snow... xxxxx

  4. So glad that you wrote about springtime when it is so cold on Long Island that the flowers are not blooming. Hope endures!
