April Showers

I love the fresh Spring green of the trees now. 
Dogwoods are blooming. Ahhh...... and tiny little details of life: 

We can almost open windows but for the rain yesterday. This is not my window but 
it is giving me ideas of redoing some windows. 

A poem which I heard today in a lecture from Hutchmoot 2013. So I had to find it and post it.
Needing to put some order in the disorder after being gone for the weekend!

A Sweet Disorder
Robert Herrick (1591–1674)

A sweet disorder in the dress
Kindles in clothes a wantonness;
A lawn about the shoulders thrown
Into a fine distraction;
An erring lace, which here and there
Enthrals the crimson stomacher;
A cuff neglectful, and thereby
Ribands to flow confusedly;
A winning wave, deserving note,
In the tempestuous petticoat;
A careless shoe-string, in whose tie
I see a wild civility:
Do more bewitch me, than when art
Is too precise in every part.
