Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most

All alone, the party’s over,
Old man Winter was a gracious host;
But when you keep praying for snow to hide the clover
Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most!
~ lyricist Fran Landesman

A quick post in a busy week, the last week of classes. It snowed, frost descended, then spring came back in all its glory. Here are a few photos of the garden, which survived the rollercoaster weather better than expected. More next week . . .

I love this song; here is a YouTube link to Ella Fitzgerald singing it with her fantastic grace and style.

  1. MY VERSE IS OF A LIGHT GREEN
    AND OF A BURNING CARMINE
    MY VERSE IS OF A LIGHT GREEN
    AND OF A BURNING CARMINE
    MY VERSE IS A HURT(WOUNDED) DEER
    THAT SEARCHES PROTECTION IN THE
    FOREST(WOODLAND)

    Lyrics of Guantanamera translated
    into english – I find color refrences
    in music interesting. Funny how I
    don’t seem to see them as often
    in songs sung in english – wonder
    why . . .

  2. Our weather is doing the same and I’ve tried to cover things I can, but the rest will have to fight through it. Weird Spring. By now classes must be finished. Hope your enjoying some time off.

  3. You have a delightful garden – and have taken some beautiful pictures of it. My favourite is the one of the snowy violets, I just love the colours and the contrast between the blooming flowers and the snow on top of them. Great work.

  4. Peace to your busy week; looks like your garden will not only make it but in glorious spades! Just gorgeous. And loves me some Ella; thanks…discovered this weekend that acres of my irises have fungus spots. Bizarre winter and spring weather have encouraged delights and destruction. Temporarily hung up, but will look for opportunities…Sad, but on we go. Such is gardening, is life…

    • Thanks, Catherine. So sorry to hear about your iris, I struggle to keep my roses going here, so you have my complete sympathy. My garden is a great teacher and patience and flexibility have been big lessons for me πŸ™‚
