Is there anything prettier than the palest green lilies? If these lilies could talk it would be in the prettiest whisper! They just happen to match our favorite pair of vintage green shoes that are made of a leather as soft as the lilies imagined voice! Spring has been so maddeningly slow to arrive that we will have to settle for bouquets of indoor lilies for now. We spied one pretty sight in an otherwise still dreary winter-worn landscape. We saw a robin busy building a nest with string that we have hung from a forsythia bush. It is such a sweet sight to see a robin, his breast the colour of an onion- skin dyed Easter egg, gathering string from amongst a few beginning yellow blooms of forsythia, with a smattering of snow just covering the grass!
