April Flowers

"Daffodils" (1804)

I WANDER'D lonely as a cloud

That floats on high o'er vales and hills,

When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;

Beside the lake, beneath the trees,

Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine

And twinkle on the Milky Way,

They stretch'd in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:

Ten thousand saw I at a glance,

Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

The waves beside them danced; but they

Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:

A poet could not but be gay,
In such a jocund company:

I gazed -- and gazed -- but little thought

What wealth the show to me had brought:

For oft, when on my couch I lie

In vacant or in pensive mood,

They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;

And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

April showers bring Spring flowers

Well, kind of. We here in southern Ontario witnessed some of the coldest winter and spring weather ever this year.As a result my tulips are a month behind coming up together with my other flowers. But at least I'm getting something,  here are the latest 2011 edition to my photo gallery.

Why hello there sunbeam! It has been a while.
Nice to see you return from your trip south
Here the winter has been grey and cold
I hope you brought back plenty of warmth.
Come on in and fill me again with your energy.
