I was definitely in the mood for spring, but then…
On Sunday – three days ago! – we had a snowstorm! About 3 inches of wet snow fell.
By yesterday, though, the snow was completely gone and the temperature rose to above 70°F! I was able to go out for a walk wearing a t-shirt! I admired the daffodils along the route, and saw a painted lady butterfly which landed on the daffodils.
I made up a silly song about daffodils. I think of them as heralds of spring because they bloom early and look like trumpets. This is to the tune of the Christmas song, Hark the Herald Angels Sing. (I tried to maintain the rhythm of the song and rhyme every two lines!)
Hark, ye heralds of the spring!
I just cannot help but sing!
Sun is out and air is warm,
Winter’s gone and spring is born!
Joyfully I walk outside
Everyone I meet says, “Hi!”
Daffodils along my way
Showing off their bright array
With their trumpets they proclaim,
“Flowers, come join our refrain!”
Butterflies and birds and bees
Color everywhere for all to see!
To see lots of spring color, go to Cee’s FOTD 4/18/19.
