  1. Lovely haiku, Colleen. I hope those fairies are tucked up warm. Spring has already made her appearance over here in the form of many spring flowering bulbs coming into flower. I’ll take some pictures and post them on my blog soon. I just hope it’s not a brief appearance with another offical two months of Winter to go.
