Seasonal Splendours...Spring!

A Prayer for Spring- Robert Frost

Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers to-day;

And give us not to think so far away

As the uncertain harvest; keep us here

All simply in the springing of the year.

Oh, give us pleasure in the orchard white,

Like nothing else by day, like ghosts by night;

And make us happy in the happy bees,

The swarm dilating round the perfect trees.

And make us happy in the darting bird

That suddenly above the bees is heard,

The meteor that thrusts in with needle bill,

And off a blossom in mid air stands still.

For this is love and nothing else is love,

The which it is reserved for God above

To sanctify to what far ends He will,

But which it only needs that we fulfil.

There was something cathartic about taking my winter evergreen wreath and tossing it aside to hang my new spring wreath. It was with happiness and hope that I created this cute spring wreath with my own hands and had to stand back to admire it with the porch light on after I made it that night. This cute "robins eggish" wreath was fashioned together using only items from the dollarstore! It's kind of easter like, but the subtle spring colours and the speckled eggs make me smile everytime I look at my front door!

Happy Spring!
