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.
"God so arrays the grass of the field..."


  1. Beautiful!! Wow! That's so refreshing. Those pink flowers are the same one's on the bush in our back yard. I'd never seen them before we moved here, & hadn't seen them since... until now. :) I'm glad we share the same flowers.

  2. What beauty to behold! I can close my eyes and see the beauty of nature bursting forth from a cold dark place called (winter). I can't wait to you come home..you may have to reflect back to pictures to capture some of this wonder!
