March Muse Day

“March Muse Day”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana


Today is Garden Blogger’s Muse Day, day to post a poem relating to gardening or nature.

Thanks to Carolyn Gail of Sweet Home and Garden Chicago for starting Garden Bloggers’ Muse Day.







The naked earth is warm with Spring,

And with green grass and bursting trees

Leans to the sun’s gaze glorying,

And quivers in the sunny breeze.

from In Battle

    Those flowers with 2 shades of blue are amazingly beautiful. Never seen them before.

      Blossom, those are violas. They are lovely aren’t they?

    They they are lovely. And as cooler weather shifts to warm, they will go to sleep for the season. I shall truly miss their little pixy faces, Jan.

    I wish this described my Muse Day, but Alas . . .

    I’ll bet your azaleas are really putting on a show right now! Oh what I wouldn’t do for more space to garden!

    Oh my, after reading the comments I realized these photos are actually from right NOW! At first I looked at them as if they were from your last yrs. files…as I would need to do that in order to get my azalea shots. But you guys are so far ahead of us…it’s amazing. Very lovely spring you’ve been having, I see;-) Hmm, I suppose a little cold air won’t hurt you too much…you’ll be right back into spring when this cold front goes through. Real spring for us probably won’t start until April some time…I think that’s when the Azalea’s bloom…but we DO have the Cherry Blossoms to look forward to this month, in DC. That is a sure sign of spring.

      Yes, Jan, spring does come early for us. The azaleas started blooming for us almost two weeks ago. The cold front wasn’t too bad down here, and tomorrow will be even warmer. Almost 80 by Thursday or Friday.
