A Colorful Spring

Spring has sprung here at the Blackberry Patch. 

Delicate ferns rising like
sea horses from the earthen floor

Violets bring back sweet memories
of children with a fistful of purple
and a wide grin on their face

Green coats and purple corsages
never looked more beautiful

The sweet scent and the soft shades of pink and white 
foretell the coming of rusty golden delicious apples

These baby 'trees' will bring forth
concord grapes, bursting with tart juice

Pink, white and green blend together
in perfect harmony 

Baby pears, tiny and delicate and just the
perfect shade of green.

Go here if you want to watch the baby eagles in Shepherdstown,  WV. They are growing fast!

  1. Love all these beautiful colors of spring! especially the bleeding heart and the comparison of green coats and purple corsages.

  2. Just love these Janet! Love those beautiful fiddle head ferns.

  3. Janet, thanks for sharing these photos.
    I wrote a long note about this and don't know where it went.
    But I loved the pics.
    Blessings, Barb

  4. You have lots of color going on around your house Janet! I love Spring!

    Happy Easter!

  5. Spring has definitely sprung in WV! You're a little ahead of us here in New England, but we're showing Spring signs with early forsythias, daffodils, a few tree blossoms.

  6. All this new growth and beautiful colors make me feel overjoyed and grateful. Violets and are right.

  7. I'd love to grow cold climate flowers. So much more choice than tropical flowers. I like your photos too. xo

  8. Spring has sprung down here, too. And the blackberries are blooming!

  9. The mountians seem especially beautiful this year in their spring attire : )
