In the herb garden,
grape hyacinth are blooming,
just a few feet from golden daffodils.
In the front yard, nestled in close to the house,
sunny squills are blooming pale and delicate,
at the edge of a sprawling patch of old-fashioned myrtle,
now bursting into bloom.
In the garden,
the purple tips of the first few spears of asparagus
are pushing up through the earth,
and chamomile thrive nearby,
greening up and growing quickly
with the first hints of warmth.
All around, the yellow cheer of early dandelions is emerging.
I am happy to see them,
and it seems I am in good company.
Wherever you are, whatever the weather, I wish you good cheer!
