Spring has sprung, the grass has riz

Saturday, February 21st, 2009

As the schoolboy poem says.  We have crocus and snowdrops in the garden, the woods are green with the bluebell shoots and the garden is full of bird-song.  It is hard to believe that we were shivering under a foot of snow a few weeks ago.   (Of course, as this is England, there is plenty of time yet for more blizzards, fog and frost!)

It seems significant amidst all this economic doom and gloom that we also are on the look out for the signs of new growth and remember that the economy is as cyclical as the weather.  In the same way that we have to work with the seasons when we tend tend our gardens, we also have to prepare the ground, plant the seeds and do what is necessary to grow our businesses too.

Ode to Spring

“Spring has sprung,

The Grass has riz,

I wonder where the birdies is?

The little bird is on the wing,

But that’s absurd! 

Because the wing is on the bird!”
