maple trees blushing
forsythia in full joy
forecast calls for snow

  2. We're almost certainly done with snow, but north Alabama is still seeing freezing overnight temps this week. Thanks for a glimpse of warmer weather ahead!

  3. I can feel the warmth wafting off of your blushing trees and forsythia—I'm hoping it will melt-a-way that forecast. I'll take the first two lovely lines, thanks Mary Lee!

  4. Oh no! The ultimate cruelty! Snow when everything is already blooming! I hope you don't get much.

  5. The signs of spring are multiplying here as well. We even heard peepers last night! I'm so glad you're writing haiku this month and look forward to reading them.

  9. I was shocked hearing about the weather changes. Nature has shocked me once again but I should be used to the change growing up in the NYS snow belt of Central New York, Mary Lee. Your haiku offers contrasts and that I like.

  11. Mmm, danger. I put in tomato plants on Tuesday at 70* and I swear the green beans sprouted overnight; this morning it's 28* and I hope everything survives. "forsythia in full joy" is perfect.

  12. Love this! Forsythia in full joy (they seem to shout their gladness) is perfect. And then the change to come in your last line.

  13. Oh the joy of Ohio in spring. Those Great Lakes have a way of keeping April and May interesting. I love joyful and blushing flowers.
