No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn.
It’s been a long, hard winter of snow, ice and freezing cold, and most of us are ready for it to come to an end. If what I saw today in my yard is any indication, the end may be in sight, at least in Houston, and I hope for you!
I was surprised to see the first azalea blooms open to the sun
and the flowering pear full of blossoms, overnight it seems.
The redbud tree, which only a day or two ago was loaded with tight little buds,
is in full bloom giving the landscape a big dose of color.
The sharp edges of the leather holly are softened by buttery yellow,
and the very old jade tree I thought was lost is showing signs of life with little green leaves sprouting from its empty limbs.
Taking in each of these tiny miracles, I marvel at how nature stays on its own schedule no matter what interferes. Can you tell that spring is near?
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
