Dear Spring

on September 3, 2013

Dear Spring

It is the third day that you have failed to appear.
The ute is bogged in the orchard.
The sun has become a faint memory here on the farm.
My geese and ducks are ecstatic.

But your sky is the colour of steel, all the clocks have stopped ticking, the telephone wiring is dead, and I can’t ride my bicycle through puddles the size of lakes on our driveway (yeah, lame excuse, I know).

The camellias are somehow hardy enough to withstand the relentless rain bombardment, but I am tired of your dark, cloudy unpredictability.

I await your arrival tomorrow, Spring.

    You should visit the east. It’s so nice and Springy here! 🙂

  2. jensine says:

    well we are having an Indian summer so maybe spring is still holidaying

  3. Tammy says:

    Julie: Exactly the type of spring we had this past springtime(May – it took FOREVER!) We were all so desperate around here for some sunshine.
    Hopefully you will have your springtime soon.

  4. Vicki (from Victoria A Photography) says:

    Yes, definitely come to the east.

    The first few days of Spring have been………….definitely…………. Spring.

    But a little bird told me, you have sent your rain in this direction (sometime this week).

    Keep the Faith, Julie. Spring will come to the West very soon. I promise.

    Julie,, I hope spring is sprung on you quickly, if your is any indication you will soon be growing webs between your toes. But as you look forward to spring, we here in Florida are looking forward to 5 weeks of fall, before we have 3 weeks of winter, followed quickly by summer. Spring is always a distant memory here. Hang in there, it will be there soon. Promise. Take care, Bill

    I hate winter with a passion. I love fall which falls before the wild snow and icy cold. I swear when Al passes on, and if I am still here I am moving where it is warmer year round

  7. The Spring will come. HUGS

  8. Lovely, the way you expressed that. Come here, it’s a sweltering 3 digits and we are dry dry dry.

    We had a spring like that but it was followed by a glorious summer. Chin Up.

  10. I think you’ve made if perfectly clear ‘spring’ should appear tomorrow in a bright sunny and warm way… so be it…. ha! Diane

  11. I’d do with a little rain right now. It’s been near 100 degrees for most of the past three weeks and a little rain would do a lot to cool things off, not to mention my garden would love it. Plants know when they get real rain water and always look so happy after a rain washes away months of dust. I hope the sun comes out for you soon!

    Will be there soon very soon dear Julie, in here autumn sings… by the winds and rain clouds… 🙂 Love, nia

  13. I hope spring as replied 🙂

  14. viveka says:

    Julie, you’re waiting on the Spring and I have the autumn coming rapidly. *smile
    I hope your Spring has arrived to day or at least some of it. *smile

  15. Lynda says:

    You seem to be having the very same spring we had this year. I hope you don’t have our very wet summer too! We are going into autumn here. It seems like the summer just flew by, and now I am seeing the hints of color here and there in our woods.
    The abrupt change has me yelling: “Come back summer! I’m not through with you yet!”

  16. adinparadise says:

    Sending you some Spring sunshine, Julie. It’s autumn here, but quite springlike. xx

  17. prayingforoneday says:

    I await the heat to bugger off…
    Never ending, and I can see the North pole if I stand on my car roof …

  18. It is sunny here today in beautiful Tasmania 🙂

  19. Sonel says:

    I am not complaining at all because the mornings are still cool. I dread the summer months when it’s too hot to do anything, so I am not complaining at this stage. The buds are coming out and the days are nice. I even wish the whole summer could be like this. 😀

  20. Autumn showed up here twenty days early 😦

  21. Fergiemoto says:

    Hope you do see spring soon. Although we have had a few days of near record highs, we are starting to see subtle signs of autumn.

  22. Finn Holding says:

    Sounds like your spring has become like ours in the UK, cold and wet. But if your summer is the same as ours it will be lovely.
