First Sign



As I walked out the door this morning

I said to myself, ” Are my eyes playing tricks on me?”  “Could it really be?”

I looked again and sure enough there in the flowerbed

I saw the first sign of Spring. Wonderful, glorious white snowdrops

had burst forth from their cold winter’s sleep.

There is something about the first blooms that make a gardener’s heart

beat faster in anticipation of seeing the landscape they designed come to life.

Often it is the smallest, simplest things in life that bring me the most joy.

With a spring in my step and a smile on my face,  I got in the car

and drove to church.

  1. I am anxiously awaiting the first blooms of spring. Our weather here in Michigan has been so crazy this winter that I don’t think the poor plants know what to do! I did see a robin last week- that first sign that the winter gray will soon disappear is a welcome sign. Enjoy your spring steps.


  2. So pretty. We have trees blooming in the South already. 🙂


  3. I remember the joy of spotting the crocus flowers poking their heads through the snow. Enjoy your garden this year!

  4. Yay spring! Even when we get “no spring” it’s better than waiting for winter to sigh its last breath.


  5. Ok. I like a sign of spring here or there. 🙂 your heart is happy. My heart gets happy when those first flakes fall down from the sky. 🙂


  6. I know that feeling that comes with the first sighting of blossoms in an early spring garden. It does put a spring in your step (pun intended!). I suspect it will be a while longer before I experience it, but I’m happy for you! Enjoy!


  7. I felt those exact same happiness pangs when I saw a robin the other day!! I love your words. They flow so beautifully! Excited about spring coming with a spring in your step. Yeah!!!!


  8. Beginning with spring and joy and topping it off with church, yay!

    Thank you!
