What is this I saw last Monday?!?
Is it real or just a dream!?!
While most trees are still bare,
we can see a few starting to bud,
but there is one which has sprouted its leafs more quickly than the rest.
I had to blend two pictures here and mirror that
to give an illusion of abundance so far
but it is a delight to walk daily underneath this green canopy.
I did also see [only] two daffodils...
The dogwood trees are still dormant,
like so many other things.
Which is hardly surprising as we still hover just above the freezing point at night
and the days aren't that warm really for this time of the year.
And ever-ever-ever that cold wind!!!!
But we remain hopeful [still] that Springtime will come...
Not just a date on a calendar
nor a mere illusion.
I've been wearing my shorts for a month now,
looking rather foolish to many who still dress as if we were still in mid-Winter...
Can't blame them though!!
But I choose to believe...
