Misplaced Spring


Where oh where has the warm weather gone371188600_d9297acb74_b

Where oh where can it be

The tulips are stressed, daffodils wilting

Oh where oh where can it be

The buds on the trees are struggling we see

Fluffy snowflakes please stop falling down                    



Come back our sweet Spring

Let all the birds sing

Bright sunshine it’s time for your crown

Our stubborn snow season it’s time you must go

You must not stay one more day

The birds want to soar, the grass wants to grow

It’s Springtime you know

Happy snowflakes please, please go away.

    In some parts of the country the falling snowflakes have been replaced by high flying debris. Not a pretty site . Oh well. That’s the life cycle for you.

    Hi, again.
    Obviously, I have a love for great photos! I also have a fairly good knowledge about images, visual media etc and the law, copyright etc. Just thought you would want to check out this link:http://bit.ly/1qCAwKR I know it’s difficult as a new blogger to know everything. Unfortunately,(as I’ve said many times) the advice or guidance we receive from people proclaiming to be experts is often wrong. But I’m sure that you’re the type of person who will welcome this tip and not take it as any sort of criticism towards you. Because of course it’s not!
    Still looking good!
