As we move into spring I'm relishing in the promise that this time of the year provides.  There is promise in this still unfurled fern.

There is promise in the brilliant, spring green of these grasses.

These azaleas have already completed their promise by blooming in great profusion.

And down at the pond the sun shines on the water while frogs plop loudly into the water at the sound of my footsteps (no matter how quietly I try to go).

I hope in your little corner of the world you are seeing signs of spring promises.

"Spring has returned.  The Earth is like a child that knows poems." - Rainer Maria Rilke


  1. Great Commentary.
    Spring certainly IS the season of promise in so many ways. We have hit a little cold snap here, though and our buds are suffering the effects of nightly frosts. Its all part of the roller coaster ride we are all on.

    Lovely pictures.

  2. My acer (japanese maple) has started to burst into leaf, so yes!

  3. I've got apricots growing like mad! April is Poetry month, great quote for it :)

  4. Such lovely photos and lovely words to go with them!
