There’s a famous saying that those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it. I am one of those people. Despite knowing that spring storms are going to destroy anything I plant in March, I just can’t resist the lovely flowers which appear in stores this time of the year.
Emily Dickinson understood:
"A little Madness in the Spring
Is wholesome even for the King…"
(From the poem A little Madness in the Spring, by Emily Dickinson)
