Spring Squills

 
The first flowers of spring
in our yard
are the squills (scilla bifolia).
 
They pop up in the places we planted them
and in the places
where the squirrels moved them...
always surprises.
 
 
They grow in a circle under the crab apple tree
and in waves though the grass.
 
They don't stay long,
but long enough to comfort 
my heart's hope for spring.

Thank you, Margie. It is "wonder-full" to see spring everywhere in the yard now.
