Hope

We’ve had a long, cold winter the likes of which people hadn’t seen in years. Only last week, we had another snow storm, complete with freezing rain and ice pellets.

Finally, finally, we see signs of Spring. It’s such a beautiful sight.

You might not be able to see those little sprouts but I was so excited to see them. Signs of nicer weather and warm days and sunshine.

Aren’t they exciting?

I have no idea what they are. Could be tulips, could be a tree, could be a weed. I just know that looking at them gives me hope.IMG_0097

This is Tubby, the tree. He didn’t come out of our long winter unscathed and we’re trying to set him ‘right’ with that pole and tying him straight. Poor little guy.

Hope comes in with Spring. 🙂
