Do I ever have a bad CASE of Spring Fever! We had temperature's in the upper 40's and low 50's last week. The snow was melting and I could actually see the pavement on the back-roads again.
Well Old Man Winter blew in again last night.. it's been nasty! I think we have at least a foot or more of new snow. I am starting to have daytime and nighttime dreams about spring. So I hope you won't mind a little peak into some of last year's pics. All were taken around Applestone Cottage or nearby.
And the rich green of our yard! I even love dandelions when they first appear! Not so much later on.
More beauty to take in....
It's been a trying week at our home. My hubby is a teacher in his 30th year.
My sister is a teacher, my hubby's sister is also a teacher and my son is as well.
I have no intentions to make my blog political. But it's been a trying week for our family here in Wisconsin.
My hubby, along with his sister and I traveled to Madison on Saturday.
Just let me say it was a day we will never forget!
A Prayer in Spring
Robert Frost (1915)
Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers to-day;
And give us not to think so far away
As the uncertain harvest; keep us here
All simply in the springing of the year.
Oh, give us pleasure in the orchard white,
Like nothing else by day, like ghosts by night;
And make us happy in the happy bees,
The swarm dilating round the perfect trees.
And make us happy in the darting bird
That suddenly above the bees is heard,
The meteor that thrusts in with needle bill,
And off a blossom in mid air stands still.
For this is love and nothing else is love,
The which it is reserved for God above
To sanctify to what far ends He will,
But which it only needs that we fulfill.
Have a great week everyone!
