Months of cold…dark days that seemed to run one into another, depressing. Walking along the lake and into the woods, brought some surcease to the drab long days, even if the world seemed to be reduced to somber grey or the dark green of pines and spruces.
Then spring began to awaken. The first blossoms began to show their heads, the snow drops at first, followed by tiny violets. Finally the first daisies and daffodils sprouted. Spring at last had pushed dull winter aside!
life marches on
spring timidly approaches
leaving dark behind
