Up in the tree we see you, blossom-babies,
All pink and white;
We think there must be fairies to protect you,
From frost and blight,
Until, some windy day, in drifts of petals,
You take your flight.

You'll fly away! But if we wait with patience,
Someday we'll find
Here, in your place, full-grown and ripe, the apples
You left behind-
A goodly gift indeed from blossom-babies,
To human-kind!

~ Cicely Mary Barker from her book called
"Flower Fairies: The Little Pink Book". ~

I also want to send some spring feelings to +Ellie Kennard because she had such a hard winter and to +Christin McLeod because I guess she is missing spring in California! :o)
