Made It!



I'm sitting on the front porch to post this announcement. From my thawing heart to yours - a message of Cardinal song, Snow Drops pushing up through the receding patches of snow, neighbors peering uncertainly from their windows, resisting hope for fear the sense of light and song may be an illusion.

It's real. Come out! Come out! The tree roots are sending life upward. The creatures herald it with stirrings and rustlings.

My fingers are numb, but this old heart knows that winter is over.

I could feel it yesterday too. It topped out at 24 degrees but the air was fresh and the sun was warmer thaan it's been in months. We always have a couple of heavy snowfalls in March here in Minnesota but it definitely feels like we've turned the corner!

Yay, I'm glad it's getting a little warmer!

Snowdrops? Really? But not here yet, I can assure you. Heck, you are in the deep south. :)

Glad you can feel a touch of spring. We are still neck deep in snow here, but Spring will come - it always does. Oh the wonder of it all.

Cathy, YES! The birdsong is getting loud and wild, I can smell warmth in the air and little tads of green here and there...

The sun is making me hopeful, even though it is still cold!

Pam said...

We should be feeling it here very soon... I pray that we do, I need spring very badly this year. I need its life force.

Cathy said...

Ruth,

Yes. Hope. A word that embodies the essence of Spring.
Hang in there.


Pam,

I'm sending you sunny, sunny thoughts and warm warm hugs, dear. Hang in there - it's coming. I promise.

I agree with you about the light. Lovely photos by the way!
We had more snow last night, but it cleaned up easily today. That is the good thing about "spring" snow. Guess we could be too dry, so I will stop complaining about it.
