Spring has Sprung

 

“Good People,

most royal greening verdancy,

rooted in the sun,

you shine with radiant light.”

 

~ Saint Hildegard ~

 

It’s amazing how things change. Two weeks ago at the cabin we were in the midst of snows of early March. Then I was out and about the garden a few days ago and there was yellow and purples, oranges and green. Spring had arrived here on the Northern Hemisphere – right on schedule with the Equinox. 

I was taken by the crocus and, as you’ll see, by the robin too;  it’s all coupled with the visions of Saint Hildegard de Bingen, 12th century Christian Mystic and Benedictine Abbess.

 

Cheers ~ Bruce

    • Thank you kindly Sreejith. I recently read an article about getting down to the ground (down to earth) for a different perspective. As for the robin, he (or she) was flitting around form here to there, just begging for me to notice her. Of course she was still quite skittish.
