Viennese Spring

"For winter's rains and ruins are over,
And all the season of snows and sins;

The days dividing lover and lover,
The light that loses, the night that wins;

And time remembered is grief forgotten,
And frosts are slain and flowers begotten,

And in green underwood and cover
Blossom by blossom the spring begins."

Quoted from
"Atalanta in Calydon"
by Algernon Charles Swinburne

  13. Thank you all,
    I hope you all had a good Easter Sunday!

    I bought some of those tulips: They are the ones in the glass blowl on my Easter Sunday breakfast table. The blossoms opened wide overnight. They are miniature tulips like I had never seen before. Truly gorgeous. Also the other tulips on my Easter table are from the Farmers' Market as are the white daffodils. These local flowers last so much longer than commercial ones.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
