I Love Spring

Yes, I do! Yes, I do! Time to dig in the cool, damp dirt. I love the smell of freshly turned garden soil. I love the wiggly wiggly earthworms. I love the way my muscles ache, after a long winter's rest from digging and planting. I love the flowers that peep out of the ground, the daffodils that are already showing off around my birdbath. Yes,I love spring.

Each year, I think about this poem, one of my favorite children's poems...

My Spring Garden...

Here is my little garden,
Some seeds I'm going to sow.
Here is my rake to rake the ground,
Here is my handy hoe.

Here is the big, round yellow sun;
The sun warms everything.
Here are the rain clouds in the sky;
The birds will start to sing.

Little plants will wake up soon,
And lift their sleepy heads;
Little plants will grow and grow
In their little, warm earth beds.
