Everything is new

“No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn.” – Hal Borland

It’s no secret that I love spring and I’m always a total geek for its flowers. But I can’t remember the last time I was this relieved to see some blooms.

Winter has a way of making you feel stuck. Stuck inside the house, stuck in darkness due to limited daylight hours, stuck in a colorless, seemingly lifeless world. And when you add being stuck in isolation thanks to a global pandemic, that makes for quite the challenge. This winter hasn’t been without its blessings, but it’s still been exhausting.

But the past week has gifted us with tangible evidence of forward progress. Spring’s earliest blooms are starting their show. Hallelujah!!! Let the oooohhhs and ahhhhh begin! Here’s to new beginnings.

And my little Finn is as excited about it as I am. It is so much fun to watch him discover this new season and a joy to slow down and admire it with him. Here are just a few images from our walks this weekend.
