A Tickling of Spring

Today I helped clean out my father’s front flower patch.  Over the winter it had collected more than its fair share of his neighbors’ Sycamore leaves.  Dad was enjoying the mild weather from his porch swing while I industriously labored to find the actual flower bed.

Underneath the winter’s blanket, I pointed out to dad that soon he will be enjoying daffodils, tulips, and crocuses.

I think that Spring must be my favorite season purely for the Spring flowers and tree blossoms.  I love Magnolias and Cherry trees best of all, as well as Lilac, Forsythia, Pussy Willow, and Pear trees.

Don’t forget Apple trees have lovely blossoms, too.  I am reading a book by Jeff Wheeler called The Wretched of Muirwood, and it is making me want to look for apple blossoms.
