As we don’t have much green happening here in central Maryland, I am going to cheat and offer up some early offerings of Spring blossoms. I hope this is acceptable.
I have no idea what these little blue flowers are called but they just recently popped up in great plentitude. Below please see them a little closer.
When the forsythias bloom, it’s a sure sign that Spring has sprung.
I’m called Little Buttercup, dear Little Buttercup,
Though I could never tell why.
But still I’m called Buttercup, Poor Little Buttercup,
Sweet Little Buttercup, I!
I’ve snuff and tobaccy, and excellent jacky,
I’ve scissors, and watches, and knives;
I’ve ribbons and laces to set off the faces
Of pretty young sweethearts and wives
I’ve treacle and toffee, I’ve tea and I’ve coffee,
Soft tommy and succulent chops;
I’ve chickens and conies, and pretty polonies,
And excellent peppermint drops. –Gilbert & Sullivan, HMS Penafore
There’s an absolute riot of daffodils and jonquils all over Annapolis!
