The happy sunny daffodils have come and gone, the lilacs have budded and promise to bloom within days. Redbuds are in full bloom.

My backyard is Narnia.

It is beautiful, really. We have a big soft blanket of snow that twirls through the air with the slightest breeze. The children are outside exploring Narnia and throwing snowballs at each other. Colin has a new "bidness" venture: he's saving snow in the newspaper wrapper so we can have snowballs in summer.

It is the perfect day for my favorite poem:

Peril of Hope
- Robert Frost
It is right in there
Betwixt and between
The orchard bare
And the orchard green,

When the boughs are right
In a flowery burst
Of pink and white,
That we fear the worst.

For there's not a clime
But at any cost
Will take that time
For a night of frost.

Beautiful poem. I planted my daffodils on the west side of the house and they are just beginning to bloom. I love spring too!
