The earth laughs

Once a year for about a week, we are treated to this sight out our bedroom and bathroom windows.  Photographed from our bedroom window, Alexandria, Virginia, April 9, 2014

“The earth laughs in flowers.”Ralph Waldo Emerson

If Emerson is right, this spring ought to be a riot of hilarity, the kind that comes as a huge relief after sustained tension.  Last week, the cherry blossoms “brought down the house” with the earth’s mirth in the DC area.  I hope you too are having a jovial treat now appearing in your local landscape.  Feel free to send photos or links to share with us, and let’s join the earth in laughing away our winter doldrums.

Flowers have an expression

This post was first published seven years ago today. The original post, comments and photo are linked, along with two other related posts, below. These links to related posts, and their thumbnail photos, do not appear in the blog feed; they are only visible when viewing the individual posts by clicking on each one. I have no idea why, nor do I know how they choose the related posts. That’s just the way WordPress does things.
