"Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as
long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature --
the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter."
It is cold, wet, and dreary.
February - the shortest month - always seems the longest.
The crocus, the hyacinth, the daffodil - have told me that
Spring will come - that it will be worth the wait.
Today the snowdrop joined the chorus.
And this bloom - on an unidentified early blooming tree by the side of the road -
called to me. It wasn't much to look at from a distance.
But if I look at it close-up it's as if Spring is already here.
I am linking up for the first time with Tootsie's Flaunt your Flowers for Fertilizer Friday.
