As Spring Grows From Winter

A short time ago, there were snowflakes on the window screen.  The sun shines now, and already the snowflakes are gone.  There are icebergs along the Lake Michigan shore where we live.  Snow rests on trees that will grow new leaves and on evergreens.

I think of harder years, and the blessings and art that grew from them.

As spring grows from winter, which is also beautiful.

Tulips from a store, February 2017.  Our winters are long, and we are grateful for the flowers sent to the stores in our area.
