Behind our house, Spring is caught in the act of happening!
The sun is striking at a higher angle than in winter, the rhododendron are fresh and new, the first fragile yellow-green leaves sparkle in the sunlight, earth is fair and fine, and all is promise!
Ah, as we head into winter here, the temperature below freezing again last night, and snow in the forecast for Sunday — I’ll remind myself that whatever the season, smiling spring or austere winter, one thing is certain. Change will happen. The seasons roll around, and always always always — Spring happens.
