Looking for Spring


Slowly the face of spring begins to show itself. First, it comes in the shape of sunny yellow jonquils. They have fought their way through the dead brown leaves who gathered to keep the bulbs warm through the winter.  Another sign, albeit not a welcome sign, is that buttery yellow dandelion poking its head out to say, “I’m back!”

Slowly the earth awakens. Tulip bulbs planted in the fall have now unwound their leaves sprouting in the garden patch. Soon this will be filled with color.

I am crossing my fingers that winter will not get jealous of all this attention given to spring as I continue to look for signs of spring.
