Pushing Through

It's March 27th, and it's still pretty gloomy here. The snow piles, while smaller, look filthy. The sky is grey. We had rain overnight.

But in the flower bed, signs of spring are pushing through.

Should I rake up these leaves, gently? I suppose so. And it might be a good idea to get the broom out, too.

  1. Seems like Jesus said, “If God so clothes…” Can we extrapolate from that, that if God gives fragile leaves and tiny seeds the chutspah (however you spell it) to sprout while the chill of winter still lingers, God gives to God’s human children grit as well to break through the winter of discontent? Anyway, it makes snese to me. Wonderful pics!

  2. Yes, it’s happening here too — in fact by the Bank of America’s south-facing brick wall there are dozens of crocuses up. Yay!

  3. Oh what joy you have shared with us. thank you for these wonderful pictures.
    Peace and love,

  4. I love the hope in the crocuses and the humor in the crocs. What serendipity that they are the same color.

  5. Yay! Spring in Maine! It’s such a wonderful feeling to see those shoots coming up. New life. Resurrection of the once dormant. Just in time for Palm Sunday and Easter coming up. :c)
