Spring Dreams

It's hard to believe that the now empty north garden will look like this again within a few months. After the snow flurries we had this week, it's almost hard to believe that spring will ever get here at all. There is so much hope and faith involved in gardening. We must look past the empty plots and see the promise of life that lies within the soil.

After the long, grey months of winter, we find ourselves craving not only warmth, but also color. This picture makes me happy every time I look at it. How nice it will be to see the yard in bloom once more.

Vision from spring-past. How exciting it is each year when we finally see that first blush of green upon the dark soil in the fields. That's when we know that spring truly has arrived.
