A Bit ‘O Spring – 3/16/15, 3/17/15

3:17:15 bee bottom sig“sweet spring is your
time is my time is our
time for springtime is lovetime
and viva sweet love

(all the merry little birds are
flying in the floating in the
very spirits singing in
are winging in the blossoming)

lovers go and lovers come
awandering awondering
but any two are perfectly
alone there’s nobody else alive

(such a sky and such a sun
i never knew and neither did you
and everybody never breathed
quite so many kinds of yes)

not a tree can count his leaves
each herself by opening
but shining who by thousands mean
only one amazing thing

(secretly adoring shyly
tiny winging darting floating
merry in the blossoming
always joyful selves are singing)

sweet spring is your
time is my time is our
time for springtime is lovetime
and viva sweet love”
~ e. e. cummings

Sunday, March 16, 2015 – A warm day with partly cloudy skies.  The neighbor’s ornamental plum is blooming and growing leaves so fast that they blossoms are already falling.  Yesterday they were mostly buds with a few blossoms open.  The early tulips are directly beneath the tree and the box elder bug is on my Oregon grape.

The morning, happy thing,
Supposed that he had come to dwell,
And life would be all spring.”

Monday, March 17, 2015 – Today was another unseasonably warm day that started off clear and sunny and developed into clouds.  I saw my first butterflies, a checkered white (no photo of that one) and an orange one that I think is a silver bordered frittilary.  If you click on the photos you can see that one has a ladybug at the bottom of the dandelion where the orange butterfly is sipping nectar.  I also have my neighbors’ Buddha dressed up for St. Paddy’s Day and if you look closely at the horizontal photo you can see a jumping spider photo bombing his hat.  A dove and a robin grace the day, along with tulips, plum blossoms, and a honeybee bum (at the top of the page).
