For winter’s rains and ruins are over[ma1] , And all the season of snows, and sins; The days dividing lover and lover, The light that loses, the night that wins; And time remembered is grief forgotten, And frosts are slain and flowers begotten, And in green underwood and cover Blossom by blossom the spring begins.
Algernon Charles Swinburne
I don't know Algernon personally but I think he was welcoming Spring after a long dreary winter. We all know the feeling. We made it through the ice storm, the pandemic, the extreme weather event of last month and we're ready for the rebirth of the earth. A lot of gardens and shrubs and plants didn't make it. No problem. We'll start over. We do that in Oklahoma a lot. I'm going to send you a blog about starting herb gardens.
