I saw little tiny purple flowers amidst the ground cover on the way into the hospital today. Flowers! It was so warm that I had my heavy winter jacket unzipped as I strode briskly on my way. We still have a goodly amount of snow up here in my yard, but it is melting off, and the water is running every where. Yesterday the deer were out everywhere I looked as I came home from school, foraging in the patches of field exposed by the brilliant sun.
Has spring arrived yet? No. Not quite yet, but there are signs of her arrival everywhere I look and it is wonderfully exciting to see. It has been a long winter.
