Spring has Sprung, the grass is ris!

Moorepark Apricot blossom

Every spring Trevor and I can be heard reciting this gorgeous little poem from Arlene Dahlgren. Think of a strong Bronx accent when reading. Caleb thinks us a little odd but indulges us as we remark on all the blossom, the daffodil and snowdrop laden paddocks where they grow wild.

Spring has sprung, the grass is ris,
I wonder where the boidies is
The boids is on the wing,
Don't be absoid
The wings is on the bird!

Arlene Dahlgren

Love the poem. I've heard it before, and never knew whose it was.

Beautiful photos. Over here in NZ, we've been noticing all the flowers out ridiculously early - a full three weeks ahead of schedule. I don't know if its the same where you are.

I don't know if that's global warming or not, but the daffodils were out well too early for Daffodil Day - those left growing were well too scraggly for sale or presentation :-( Still, seeing crocuses in late July was nice - they were pretty through the snow.
