All my life, as soon as Christmas was over, I believed that spring was just around the corner. As those of you in cold places know, it isn't exactly the case, but I think we all eagerly anticipate it coming.
I remember searching in the melting snow in my grandmother's garden, waiting for the purple headed snow crocus to pop their heads through.
And inspecting tree branches for green buds.
And Easter Lilies! Oh, how I adore Easter lilies. And speaking of Easter, Cadbury Creme eggs! Has anyone else noticed that they aren't nearly as runny and egglike on the inside like they were when we were kids? Or did I just imagine this?
Anyway, I love spring! Spring holds the promise of new growth and a fresh start. We all need a chance for new growth and a fresh start. Plus, the big change coming on January 20th also feels like new growth and a fresh start. (Obama!)
These will be added to the shop next week, along with some other new nature children that I'll share soon.
