Boy Meets Flowers


Here's a picture to brighten your May morning: the Rhiesling in Tulips!

(Click it for the full 3-D effect!)

And one of my favorite spring poems,
The Goose Girl, by Edna St. Vincent Millay:

Spring rides no horses down the hill,
But comes on foot, a goose-girl still.
And all the loveliest things there be
Come simply, so, it seems to me.
If ever I said, in grief or pride,
I tired of honest things, I lied:
And should be cursed forever more
With Love in laces, like a whore,
And neighbors cold, and friends unsteady,
And Spring on horseback, like a lady!

That's perfection - in all ways; every which. LOVE it - thanks for brightening my eyes; my day.
