This year, we had snow in the beginning of May. The little buds planning to come and parade their beauty had to stay back home, hidden from our hungry eyes, waiting for spring. After the snow melted, the leaf buds dared to take a chance and come out in the open. They took their time to unfold and grow into little green leaves that shimmered in the cool morning breeze. I did not know that the flower buds had not given up. Today I saw many trees have little flowers peeping through the green leaf cover and saying ” Hello, we are back. Smile again as we are ready to dazzle you with colors and fragrance!!”
Oh, it is so good to be outside again and enjoy the bounties of nature…..Rejoice… Spring is here.
