Awake thou wintry earth

Awake, thou wintry earth -
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!
~Thomas Blackburn, "An Easter Hymn"

We, in Minnesota, are yet to see Spring in full green. I think it is just a few more days of wait, after all no winter stays for ever and no spring forgets its turn.


  1. I guess you are all waiting for the return of Spring. Visiting for Thursday Challenge

  2. I was able to enlarge and enjoy the lovely details, like the geese swimming around on the pond, even though spring green has not yet arrived.

  3. Indeed, away with the harsh cold, welcome to the warmth of Spring, nice capture!

  4. Always makes my happy to see the first green, or what looked like green.

  5. Here in the UK we have had abnormal weather. Plants that would normally flower in June are well on the way. Hope it comes to you soon - no doubt we must make the most of it and summer will be fleeting.
