Nearly Spring

And Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth's dark breast
rose from the dreams of its wintry rest.

Percy Bysshe Shelley, from "The Sensitive Plant"

That is so beautiful and so true. My snowdrops even came through anti root cloth and grit ; ) I don't mind, it isn't weed ; )
Have a good beginning of the new week.
