Snow is melting now.
Spring waits to burst from the ground.
Sleeping tulips wake!
Our little ones planted these with us the first October we were living in Minnesota. Just before the ground froze we rushed to get the bulbs in, so we would have an early treat in the spring.
When the snow finally melts, I go to the garden and search for the leaves poking out from the ground. It’s the tulips that assure me that I have made it through another winter.
Soon my friends, soon our world will be filled with green! Just a little longer!
