A Hint of Spring

To analyze the charms of flowers
is like dissecting music;
it is one of those things which
it is far better to enjoy than to
attempt to understand.

How is it that a walk around the
yard and just the smallest vinca bloom
can remove  the remnants of a
stressful day?
I think the poet is right,
I simply allowed myself to be
charmed.

Oh my! What a pretty picture.... I do love flowers. You are right about Nature helping us de - stress... Seeing the flowers or especially hearing a mourning dove cooing or a squirrel scolding always relaxes me!

Memo to self: get outside more this Spring! It will be well worth it!

Thanks for a lovely post today. Loved the little poem.

Hugs, Jenni

Love the poem. I can't wait for spring and to see the flowers. There's just something about the fresh scent and beauty of flowers. Have a great weekend.
