I saw them!
Green shoots pushing through the ground. Little buds of yellow peeking through. After one of the coldest winters Oklahoma has experienced in a while, it appears spring just might show up after all!
Some girls like diamonds. Others like shoes. I love flowers.
Not the kind that show up in a vase, but the ones that crop up in gardens, along the highway, and if I’m lucky in my own front yard.
I’m missing the feeling of dirt running through my fingers.
I’m missing sitting in the gentle spring sun and planting Impatiens and Gerber Daisies and a myriad of other species. I drove by an Atwoods today and saw naked trees in green pots, and I’m already thinking about where to place one.
For me, spring is life. It’s warmth. It’s joy.
It makes me happy.
