(Sung to the tune of "Hey Hey We're the Monkees!")
Here we come
Poppin' through the earth
Get the friendliest looks from
Everyworm we meet...
Hey hey we're the SNOWDROPS
People say what took you so long?
But we're too busy growing
And writing our new theme song!
When I got home from school today and noticed a lot of snow near
the dryer vent had melted away I thought I'd better have a looksee
in case my wee snowdrops had begun to push their way up.
They are the bravest little souls of pre-spring days, I love them so.
Especially these ones.
When I moved into my condo 16 1/2 years ago my parents still
lived in our family home in Norwich. I began the process of
transplanting some of my favourite flowers from my first village home
to the first home in the city that I bought for Kazi and me.
To me it never ceases to be a miracle when I start to see those
hardy green shoots popping up through ice and snow.
Just the merest hint of warmth and sunshine has these tough
little survivors pushing past any obstacles in their path -
gee, I feel like I'm describing myself!!
AND you know when you start seeing kids wearing shorts in the barely
above zero temperatures SPRING can't be far off!!
