Spring Forward Spring!

Rain with possible snow again today.  
Old Man Winter longs to linger
as Spring patiently awaits for Winter to admit defeat.

Yesterday began with snow, enough to stick for an hour or two
(see yesterday's post picture),
but the old guy couldn't withstand the youth of Spring
and the afternoon was lovely.

I used this dose of sunshine wisely and finished my Spring Clean-up. 
Every bush is pruned, every flower bed is free from the leaves and debris of Winter 
and my Perennial Garden stands ready to do her thing,
unencumbered by dead branches of the past.
I've done my part to welcome the new Season, now it's up to her: 
Spring forward Spring!
A tender peony patiently waiting for sunshine
