The Progress of Spring

by TG Escapes | Mar 5, 2014 | Blog, Residential

THE groundflame of the crocus breaks the mould, 
Fair Spring slides hither o'er the Southern sea, 
Wavers on her thin stem the snowdrop cold 
That trembles not to kisses of the bee: 

Come Spring, for now from all the dripping eaves 
The spear of ice has wept itself away, 
And hour by hour unfolding woodbine leaves 
O'er his uncertain shadow droops the day. 
She comes! The loosen'd rivulets run; 
The frost-bead melts upon her golden hair; 
Her mantle, slowly greening in the Sun, 
Now wraps her close, now arching leaves her bare
To breaths of balmier air.
Alfred Lord Tennyson

Beautiful, isn’t  it? At the risk of being a little premature in my excitement, the first signs of Spring are bursting forth. Blossom, that beautiful portent for the year ahead, is colouring the landscape as the days draw out. Birdsong, that quintessential mark to the end of winter, fills the morning air with its heady, joyous sound. I know it’s still pretty chilly and there’s even a chance of snow. We should heed the proverbial warning to ne’re cast our clout till May be out….but wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could sit in a beautiful warm cocoon, a Garden Escape, and watch your garden come to life? And think to yourself it's a wonderful world.
