Botanical Wednesday: Spring is coming!

At least, that’s what I keep telling myself as yet another snowstorm bears down on us.

Just some happy grass cells under the microscope. - Imgur

    Now imagine all those happy mouths singing “It’s a small world”.

    I have seen in bloom: periwinkle, trout lily, bloodroot, Carolina spring beauty, and striped squill.

    FINE. I have only seen a single one of each.

    And only just this week.

    But it’s happening!

    You got one of my favorite Ogden Nash poems wrong!

    *clears throat

    Spring has sprung
    The grass is riz
    I wonder where the birdies is.
    Some people say the bird is on the wing
    But that’s absurd
    The wing is on the bird.

    @Gregory – I always heard that poem as,

    Spring is sprung
    Da grass is riz
    I wonda where dem boidies is.

    Da little boids is on da wing.
    Ain’t dat absoid!
    Da little wings is on da boid.

    Obligatory obscure cultural reference:
    Time to drag out ol’ Tom Lehrer and go poison a few pigeons in the park.

    Spring? It’s been 90+ the last two days. But, I’ll take inspiration from the pic and put on a happy face. Sweaty, but happy.

    It’s cherry-blossom season over here. A thunderstorm (from all the room-temperature “heat” of this week) was announced but still hasn’t started.
