New life springs forth

Every spring it always amazes me how quickly life springs forth as the snow melts and some warm days arrive.  The snow is still leaving my yard and new life is already emerging cheering me up with the freshness of new green and even the first flower!  When I walked around to check my yard on Saturday, the garden beds were mostly still brown.  Look what happened when the sun warmed the earth this Easter Sunday!

one day this was a bare brown patch and the next the crocus leap forth!

  1. If you ask any gardener it is the time in spring when life starts to emerge that cheers us most. The behavior is universal, we walk through our garden, or gardens with that same impatience looking for the first signs of green, the first blooms.
