HERALDING SPRING

Spring is just a month away and already the peach, apple and quince are blooming their hearts out. Just loaded with soft pink, white and red blossoms.

Thanks to the rains this year, the winter was a pretty mild one – well compared to last years awful deep freeze. The last chance for a late freeze is March, so we still could have a cold front come through. But in the meantime we are enjoying the rain and mild temperatures.

The naked earth is warm with Spring,
And with green grass and bursting trees
Leans to the sun’s kiss glorying,
And quivers in the sunny breeze.
