Dear March, how are you?
And the rest?
Did you leave Nature well?
Oh, March, come right upstairs with me,
I have so much to tell!
Emily Dickinson, Complete Poems, 1924

Jetzt scheint der Frühling wirklich da zu sein. Bei dir blüht auch schon einiges wie man sieht.

Mörike, Eduard (1804-1875)
Frühling lässt sein blaues Band
Wieder flattern durch die Lüfte
Süße, wohlbekannte Düfte
Streifen ahnungsvoll das Land
Veilchen träumen schon,
Wollen balde kommen
Horch, von fern ein leiser Harfenton!
Frühling, ja du bist's!
Dich hab ich vernommen!

...jedenfalls in Noord Brabant...

Such beautiful flowers! Are these all in your home and gardens? I could look at these pictures all day and dream of what is to come in my own garden, hopefully in just a few weeks.

Hannele said...

So lovely, beautiful flowers.

Gotta Garden said...

OH, the hellebores! That last one is...heavenly! All the pictures are lovely...I think we should all just hang out in your!

Spring looks to be in full glory there!

(I got a new Hellebore today! NOT a double, unfortunately, but a quite nice picotee one.)

Carol said...

Wow you have gorgeous spring flowers Yolanda! I love the double Helleborus! And your wooden pots with FLEURS written on are gorgeous! That poem speaks right of her (Emilies) heart, it's beautiful!

Bert said...

Spring is in the air. Looking at your pictures, you can almost smell it! And hear the birds sing their songs.....

A warm thank you all for stopping by my blog.

Sisah, thank you for that lovely poem and your sense of humor! ;-)

Carol, the picture of the white double hellebore was taken in the garden of some dear friends of mine.

Gotta Garden, what a lovely idea. What a pity we all live so far away from each other.

Carol (from Germany), yes, it is a very beautiful poem straight from the heart. I'm glad you felt that.
