Springtime Emerging

So, this morning an e-mail arrived from our daughter in the Boston area--you know . . . that place that just got hammered by the dark forces of winter. They got something approaching three feet, plus drifts above that. So much fun. So, at any rate, there are apparently signs of Spring, in the form of slowly disappearing snow. She enclosed a picture from their garden. The picture is here below:

 Yep, that's a Buddha, beginning to emerge from his white blanket.
But just in case you're thinking he always looks that way, here's another shot from a slightly warmer time . . . same garden . . . same Buddha (with buddy)



And, I thought . . . that's a good sign, especially that touch of sun, because sun and snow result in water, which has been known to reduce the compacted snow blanket.
So, I walked outside at our Concord, North Carolina home to see what signs of an emerging spring I could find here. And, I'm happy to report that spring is on the way, although it is not yet here fully. But, for what it's worth, and as a hopeful sign, here it is:
First, of course, a couple of daffies . . .


 
Then some signs of color from our heavenly bamboo . . .

 
Next, some really green moss . . .


and last, but not least, our rosemary is blooming wonderfully . . .


 
May your world be filled with Spring, wherever you are.
