In the midst of all the dire news on the current COVID crisis, one might be excused for not noticing the quick disappearance of our heavy winter snow cover. Now all we have to do is wait 3-4 weeks and hope for some April showers to get rid of the drab colours and provide is with a flush of green spring growth. I, for one am itching to get gardening.
Winter white now melted away,
exposes grass, drab brown and grey
’til April rain brings greener May.
Will clear blue skies and golden rays
lead bright coloured flowers our way
or just black winds that blow all day?
