Spring is sprung

"Spring is sprung, the grass is ris,
I wonder where da boidies is?
Dey say de boid is on da wing,
But dat's absoid,
I always hoid,
Da wing is on da dickie boid"

There seems to be as many forms of this bit of doggerel as there are postings of it on the web, but this is the version I learnt as a boy. The spelling is supposed to represent a bronx accent.

It's a bit too early to say that Spring is really here: another cold snap is very possible. But here to help us on our way are some cheeky crocus, smiling and waving as we pass, defying the cold and winds, to cheer us up.

You can't help but smile

Some more, just for fun!
