It's about this time each year that I am winter-weary...so ready to see the first signs of spring. I'm looking forward to hearing the birds singing cheerfully, seeing the grass become green again, the buds on the trees, and the the daffodils poking up.
One of my most anticipated signs of spring....seeing this now ice-covered forsythia bush in full bloom! Soon it will be covered in vibrant sunshine-yellow blooms...
A glimpse of some of the trees in the orchard, glistening with a heavy layer of ice.
If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant;
if we did not sometimes taste of adversity,
