The forsythia, primroses, pansies and crocuses will soon give way to cherries, azaleas, daffodils and lilacs, which will then fade into the background for the dogwoods, roses, wisteria and peonies. So goes this natural progression of blossoming, going to seed, then lying dormant until the next Spring.

Nothing Gold Can Stay

Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leafs a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

-Robert Frost
