All Too Soon ...

“All too soon we had to part
The moment you had touched my heart
And with you went my dream
All too soon …

You should know as well as I
Our love deserves another try
For you whispered goodbye
All too soon
Too soon”
                     ~ “All Too Soon”
            ~ 1940 song composed
 by Duke Ellington, lyrics by Carl Sigman,
     recorded by other artists including
               Ella Fitzgerald

After rare warm February temperatures, this daffodil bloomed all too soon at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania, then whispers goodbye as it wilts all too soon after a March snowfall.

Daffodil, Jonquil, Narcissus … whatever name you choose, it’s beauty is gone all too soon about a week before spring is set to bloom.

Snow Painted Boughs...

“Snow provokes responses that reach right back to childhood.”

I shot this evergreen with snow painted boughs on the upper plateau of Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania in mid-March, but it reminded me of the trees seen in Christmas Town in Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, my most favorite of childhood Christmas specials ... and it still is!
