Today we are supposed to have sun.  The sky is getting lighter and I saw the moon last night.   This may seem silly to many of my readers out there that see the sun and the moon numerous occasions throughout the winter, but here in the Pacific Northwest it has been a long, cold, wet, gray winter.   One thing that doesn’t change is spring.   It may be later this year.  Plants may have a harder time recovering from the brutal winter but nevertheless it comes.

In a garden one of the things that keeps you hoping is the first green shoots, buds then finally blooms.    Today I want to celebrate what is blooming in my garden this week.  Like the promise of a rainbow, God’s promise to never flood the earth again, the blooms of spring help us to believe that winter can’t last forever.
