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…

 Come Spring!








About the author

I retired 9 years ago from teaching and then remarried. Of course that wasn't enough of a life change, so I moved to Wisconsin where my husband Jon resided. This blog reflects thoughts about my Wisconsin and Michigan, hobbies, and family history. As of 2016 we have returned to NW Lower Michigan near family and friends.
