Waiting….

Waiting……. for spring to really arrive.

Today we saw the first true sign:  the tips of the the maples are red.  We saw them this morning in the sunshine.

And here is the other sign:  snowdrops blooming!  I love the shape of the little blossoms…. They are so brave peeking up out of the snow.

We are waiting for a spring thaw…. and colors other than white, brown, and black.

And tonite we are waiting for another winter storm… with predictions of another 3-5″ of snow.  That will put us over 100″ for the winter.  (It has just started snowing in the last hour.)

Yep…. we are waiting for spring!  But we can see it coming.  We can smell the difference in the air.  The light is different.  The sun is in a different place.  We can feel the world changing.  Hope.  Renewal.  Freshness.  Growth.  Change.  Miracles……… Spring!
