sweet signs of spring

Lupine are up in the garden. Each leaf perpetually holds a glistening drop of rain water like a jewel.
The copper leaves of the spirea have unfurled and glow warmly; a burnished bush.
Buds swell on daffodil and tulip, a promise of color to come.
Burgundy shoots of bleeding heart and peony rise from the ground like sword points.
Purple primula, apple green helleborus, pink bergenia;
The sweet, sweet signs of spring.
