A spring garden is full of surprises: It seems like nothing is alive there; then blossoms open overnight. The frozen, sleeping ground softens and wakes up; mud gives way to young, green shoots.
Birds return with happy songs, building their nests and laying eggs. Soon they’ll be looking for yummy treats to feed their babies; then, they’ll teach them to fly.
Spring’s fragrance is unique and pungent: A mixture of warming earth, rain-washed air, new grass and blossoms. So different from the cold smell of winter.
Oh, the thrill of new life, it’s promise, unrealized dreams and possibilities! May all that is birthed in this young season grow to maturity and fruition.
