The Promise of Spring


Where man sees but withered leaves,
God sees sweet flowers growing.
~Albert Laighton






In the deep of winter,
Signs of spring fill me with hope.

Gorgeous. I love Magnolia buds, I think the furriness is such a wonderful contrast to the bare bark.

We are all itching for Spring, I am as excited now as I was 40 years ago. And like I am telling everyone, I have ordered a new camera. Blimey I am just like a kid with a new pair of shoes, guess I am old enough to be entering a second childhood.

Thank you all for visiting and taking the time to let me know you were here! I so appreciate the encouragement! The Magnolia buds first caught my eye, positively shining in the sun - spring is still a long way off here in PA, but the unmistakable signs are a welcome sight!

Chris, I know how hard it is to get such great shots of buds because I have tried myself. Excellent!

The Whimsical Gardener said...

Oh yeah it won't be long now!! The softness of the pussy willows is so endearing!

Chris said...

Carolyn: Lighting makes such a difference and every once in a while I'm in the right place at the right time. The right light makes up for the lack in my camera and skill. :-)

Cat: It will actually still be quite some time here, but I'm trying to notice and appreciate the beauty that's around me now.

Makes me long for spring. You are a little ahead of me here.
