Hope Springs Eternal

This lovely crocus appeared in my yard immediately after the 20+" of snow melted!  The robins returned from the south.  Such a dramatic March.... and today "The Ides." 

"Hope springs eternal in the human breast;
Man never is, but always to be blest:
The soul, uneasy and confin'd from home,
Rests and expatiates in a life to come."

~Alexander Pope, An Essay on Man

Ah... this was beautiful a reminder to me about the Ides of March, Pat. Spring is a wonderful time of the year -- I am enjoying it in Colorado this week as it is my younger grandson's first birthday approaches.
