“Listen as the budding trees dance in tepid showers,
Dreaming of the day they'll see the blooming summer flowers.”

Spring Green

"Nature’s first green is gold, 
Her hardest hue to hold. 
Her early leaf’s a flower; 
But only so an hour. 
Then leaf subsides to leaf. 
So Eden sank to grief, 
So dawn goes down to day. 
Nothing gold can stay."

~ Robert Frost, Nothing Gold Can Stay

"Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. 
Nothing can be done without hope and confidence."  ~ Helen Keller

When I planted sixty-four pink and white bulbs last fall, I dreamed of enjoying bunches of blooms. Instead, I have one perfectly beautiful tulip and 15 more buds that still haven't revealed their potential. Fingers crossed!

One of the most peculiar traditions in Paris is  
the Sunday bird market on the Île de la Cité.

Here is the Wisconsin version of the Marché aux Oiseaux:
Chickens at the garden center and visiting our nephew's new peeps 🐥.

"On Earth Day, we celebrate all the gifts the world and nature make available to us. We recognize our complete dependence on its bounty. and we acknowledge the need for good stewardship to preserve its fruits for future generations." ~ John Hoeven. It's Earth Day and it's doesn't get much "earthier" than these tiny treasures I discovered today!
