Playing With March Blooms, Frogs And Others


A frog’s a very happy thing,
Cool and green in early spring,
Quick and silver through the pool,
With no thought of books or school.
Oh, I want to be a frog,
Sunning, stretching on a log,
Blinking there in splendid ease,
Swimming naked when I please,
Nosing into magic nooks,
Quiet marshes, noisy brooks.
Free! And fit for anything!
Oh, to be a frog in spring!

Spring Wish By John Farrar

  4. Dear Tatyana, This is a posting to fall in love with for it combines beauty, touches of humour and great imagination. You have been to so much trouble to arrange this, and have given it such thought, that looking and reading this has been one of the highlights of my day.

    Great fun and such joy - thank you so much.

  5. Glad to see spring has sprung somewhere. We have a couple of kinds of wood frogs native here, a fact I didn't know as a kid. I thought we were a frogless state.

  12. How very cute, I think the Daffodil Fairy deposited daffodils all over your garden. Love the daffies with the Hellebores. Your frog poem is great...would you believe I went to grade school with a John Farrar? I am sure it isn't the same, just a fun coincidence.

  18. Thank you, frog- and daffodil-lovers! I had fun looking for the creatures in the garden who would agree to hold flowers. My frogs were very cooperative!

  20. I like your frog sculptures, I have a couple of frogs in my garden too. I put a small wildlife pond in the garden last year which enticed a couple of real frogs into the garden too.

  21. Tatanya .. I haven't been here for a while (my brain cells have been totally scattered for a while ? LOL) You have your blog looking fantastic and what a perfect post for me to be back for : )
    I totally LOVE frogs and have quite a few of them (only as garden art sadly) in my garden too : ) I wish I could keep a water feature to draw some in and have them sing for me : ) Do you have real ones visit ? You have such a beautiful garden they MUST !
    Love the post girl : )

    Now that was fun. I kept scrolling down to see where you were going to stick the daffodils next. LOL! You have some cute statues around in your garden. I like the fiddling cat.

  27. Tatyana, your photos are a treat for my eyes. It's blogs like your's that gets a Northern gardener like me through a long, cold winter.
    I enjoyed the poem, too!

  35. Spring is looking very beautiful in your garden, Tatyana. Isn't it wonderful to see color again? My first crocus blooms opened yesterday to keep the little snowdrops company. Pure joy!
