Golden daffodils with orange trumpets
unfold their sunshine petals
for all to see
Wild anemone raise their heads above last year's fallen leaves
Primroses, tender violets and a single daisy
draw our attention to the shady spots
and fluffy blossom trees line the streets
Down by the lake,
the early magnolia bloom
framed by nurturing branches and a perfect clear March sky
Closer to home,
Easter is being celebrated
with traditional hot cross buns
and the yellow duckling guards the baskets of tiny truffle filled eggs...
but not for too long, methinks!
