FREEZING RAIN, SPRING, and the promise of PEONIES

Spring is teasing us this year with its elusiveness.  


One day of milder temperatures, followed by many days of wind, cold, freezing rain, and clouds.  Those of us who live in the north are one hardy bunch. We know the warmer days will come.  We try to be patient.  

Meanwhile . . . we plot, plan, dream, and fantasize about how beautiful our gardens will be this summer.  

We bundle up, pull up our hoods, and do our daily garden inspection for some sign of life.  Look closely.  Bend down.  Squint.  Nope.  Move a few feet.  Bend.  Squint.  Bend further.  Yes!  There it is!  A little green shoot, barely visible, but boldly making its appearance in the garden!

Very soon now, green shoots will be everywhere.  And, once again, the promise of flowers and warmer days will come true.
