...more of Velma's Backyard!

"What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare."
W.H. Davies, Leisure






Then the snow melts
and within a few days,
spring blossoms load the flowering trees with color. . .








. . .and early-flowering lunaria
dress the yard with reflected sunbeams and signs of life.

"How many beautiful trees gave their lives
that today's scandal should, without delay, reach a million readers!
Edwin Way Teale, Circle of the Seasons
