The Promise of Spring

What a horrible winter 2007-2008 was! I had health problems that got better, John has health problems and they won't get better. Hopefully, next winter will be a better one. The good news is that no matter how awful, cold, and frozen the winter is---- spring will come. This year it is especially welcome. I went for a walk in the garden the other morning--before the last couple of freezing nights and found these little darlings doing their work.

Hi Stephanie!
What absolutely beautiful pictures! I'm so glad you are finally getting some spring weather there. Am I right in thinking that you used to live in Californa? It must feel like winter lasted forever this year!

Hope you are getting a respite from the health concerns, and that you can enjoy the BEST season of the year...
xoxo,
Mary

How gorgeous!!! I wish we still had bulb flowers like yours around. They're my favorite and I miss them when they're gone.

I hope you husband health has a turn for the better. You will be in my thoughts.

Hi Stephanie,
I agree winter of '08 was not so great. Haven't been around for a while but hope your and your husband are doing better. Your garden looks lovely. Can't wait to see how your roses are doing.
