Spring delayed , Winter extended
Locked away in the basement
working on things that I should be working on
when the snow is flying,
and here it is, April!
See my face through the blinds?
Looking , watching , waiting ?
Yet I, still buried in fleece, huddle inside
occasionally breaking out
to do walkabouts in the yard looking for signs.
Warnings of rain,
of snow …. of both
A compulsive outing ends with
FOUR peonies in my south window with the violets.
Hostas carried over starting to leaf out
My winter basement garden
watered and patiently waiting for sun’s first light.
Plans swirling in my mind…
