|Descanso Japanese Garden Area, La Canada Flintridge, CA, Early Spring, ~ Michael Locke's Flickriver|
It is my pleasure to welcome all to the garden, where I hope you will feel a touch of Spring in the air. If you have any seasonal poems you would like to share today, we would love to read them, or select another poem which you would like to link up. Anything goes in the garden on Monday.
Part of the magic of our Open Link is that it is relatively small, with generally fewer than 30 links. This means that it is possible to enjoy several poems, without the time spent reading becoming too much of a chore. However, when visitors link up but do not visit other sites to read the work of the poets who have linked alongside them, it is very noticeable. The garden will be of no value to such a person, because the lack of interest in the work of others will be returned. Let Spring be our guide this month: make new connections and renew old acquaintances so that we can all grow together.
