did you know...

Upon a Lilac Sea
To toss incessantly
His Plush Alarm
Who fleeing from the Spring
The Spring avenging fling
To Dooms of Balm-
                                -Emily Dickinson
... did you know that April is national poetry month?  I have gone through phases of loving poetry and phases of ... well, not, NOT loving poetry, but not having the patience to appreciate poetry.  But when I am in the right state of mind to open myself up to beautiful poetry it is incredibly rewarding. 
 I visited a family friends house today and knew that I had to have my photo taken in her beautiful garden... doesn't it look like a sea of lavender?!  It was sooo lovely and I wanted to lay down in the garden, but I was afraid of crushing all of the flowers (and it smelled so GOOD!)  I just love spring.....
