A Little Madness in the Spring

A little madness in the Spring
Is wholesome even for the King,
But God be with the Clown —
Who ponders this tremendous scene —
This whole Experiment of Green —
As if it were his own!
-Emily Dickinson

It has been gorgeous here this past week, and I thought I'd share it with some of you cold southerners. These are pictures of our backyard and all the beautiful flowers blooming in it.
