Springtime

Spring is a lovely time of year. It’s still cold and it may seem that there’s not much to see, but if you look hard you can find lots of lovely signs of hope. Sometimes it can feel like it has been winter forever, but against all the odds, the spring comes again. Flowers start to show themselves even though temperatures still dip quite low, and everything begins again. In the last few weeks the Snowdrops and Crocuses have been appearing, as well as Celandines and Daisies. And the first few Daffodils too. It makes me so happy to see them emerging – little splashes of colour and hope, lighting up my world.

  1. If only! We are still buried under feet of snow with no sign of clearing in our corner of town. A dispute between the city and snow clearing crews leaves us shovelling out our cars, steps and sidewalks every day. I love spring flowers and have wonderful bulbs but will not see anything like this until April. Enjoy
