"the earth laughs in flowers..."
Happy Earth Day! The Massachusetts poet. e.e.cummings, certainly knew the joys of spring after a long snowy winter. He celebrated spring's spectacular show with the image invoking line. "the earth laughs in flowers." At long last, New England is beginning to giggle as the buds swell and grow fat with the promise of blossoms to come. Everywhere you look the early spring bulbs have risen from the damp earth and overhead the arched branches whisper with promise. While the wind gently carries the floral scent of the perfumed princess, hyacinth, through the open window mocking me as I struggle to resist its allure. This is no time to work indoors! Take a look and see if the amazing photos below don't inspire merriment!
