“March brings breezes loud and shrill, to stir the dancing daffodil”. Sara Coleridge, 1802-1852.
Though it’s now April, that’s a perfect description of the weather we’ve been having. The daffodils and more are in bloom…I turned my back for a minute and spring has begun….
“April brings the primrose sweet, scatters daisies at our feet” Well, not so much here in New England, although it must have been so in the Lake District of “Old” England where Sara Coleridge was born and raised. Here, the ‘April White’ Rhododendron is blooming in a very timely manner, along with Pieris, Hazels, and an early flowering Cherry, ‘Snow Fountains’.
