“Waiting for Spring”

“Waiting for Spring”

“Beneath your burdensome regrets and who you think you are through the lens of past mistakes, there is someone beautiful who wants to emerge.”
― Bryant McGill

Spring has arrived! Though, somebody needs to inform the weather. In stark contrast to last week, this one has been quite chilly. Despite the sun shining brightly and turning open trails to mush, the forest floor remained locked in a shallow frost. At least enough to create a thin skiff of ice on the small forest floor puddles.

These leaf filled puddles, with their yellow, brown, and gray occupants, are like a miniature canvas, reminding me of the spectacular fall last year. In a few more days, the ice will be a memory and green will return once more to the forest floor, followed by bright trout lilies, pink spring beauties, and white trilliums. I even noticed a few wild leeks beginning to emerge from the chilly earth.
