280. Spring, you put a spell on me and you make me feel like dancing… ~Edited and adapted excerpt of lyrics by Vincent, Poncia Jr./Leo Sayer

Happy days are here again!
The skies above are clear again!
So let’s sing a song of cheer again!
Happy days are here again!
~Excerpted lyrics by Milton Ager/Jack Yellen

Okay, so it’s not really spring yet, at least not according the the calendar, but springy things sprang up in my greenhouse yesterday.  As a result melodies, not just from the birds, filled the air, and indeed it was an occasion for dancing.  I didn’t care what the neighbors might think about an old lady jumpin’ around like a madwoman, it was definitely time for some singin’ and a little jig.  Why?  Well after weeks of waiting tulips were blooming, a daffodil had opened up, and the first bee of the season had found its way inside to sup on the nectar in my little grape hyacinths.  I don’t know about you, but that’s a formula for springtime in my book.  And every time beauty and miracles like that emerge from seemingly nothingness, I fall in love all over again with the Creator of the Universe.  What amazing things He has made and given to us, we creatures who are often so undeserving of His gifts and His grace!  Now that’s love, is it not?!

He said, “O Lord, God of Israel, there is no God like you, in heaven or on earth, keeping covenant in steadfast love with your servants who walk before you with all their heart.  ~2 Chronicles 6:14  ✝

  2. Dear Natalie, You are a woman after my own heart! I’m smiling away as I picture you singing and dancing to the beat of blossoms. Reminds me of my teacher days when I would greet my Little Chickadees (precious students) with a melody and motion at the classroom door in the morning. Have a most delightful week! Love, Bette

  3. Beautiful picture, Natalie. How marvellous to have so much in your beloved greenhouse, and the ‘singin’ and a little jig’ sounds a great way to celebrate it. I have been lucky, too. I can see a carpet of crocuses and clumps of snowdrops when I look out of the window. Definitely springy! ~ Amelia 🙂
