Signs of Spring
Slowly but surely, little signs of spring are appearing. The first tender shoots of daffodil and tulips are pushing through the earth. The special tulip bulbs, hand delivered via the honeymooners after their trip to Amsterdam last September, are also starting to push through the earth in the large clay pots they were planted in on the porch. Tiny white snowdrops are budding, looking like pearly white teeth right now. Soon a sunny day will arrive and they will open their faces wide as they seek the sun. Don't you just love the little bits of spring that are appearing, even on these wintry days? They speak of hope, promise, and joy. For now, I'm just wishing the clouds would move aside and LET THE SUNSHINE IN!
Have you seen signs of spring in your yard?
