Spring Always Comes

Spring never slips over the earth in an instant, instead it comes in fits and spurts.

A flower pops up here, while a bit of snow falls there. A chilly day today is followed by blue skies and sun tomorrow as winter slowly cedes to spring.snow drops

This year instead of sharing time, winter and spring are sparring.  The ground’s dusting of snow is quickly burned off by the hot sun, only to be replaced by evening. Warm days are chased with frigid ones. A sunny day is repeatedly interrupted by howling wind and snow. Its a war between the seasons, but I know who will win.DSCN1816-(2sm)

Life always marches on. Spring always follows winter.

The baby chicks are peeping warm and safe out of the biting wind and the daffodils are slowly blooming despite their occasional covering of snow. baby chickNew bees have been installed with plenty of honey to keep them fed until the weather warms and new fruit trees have been planted in spraying snow with fingers crossed.new bees

Spring always wins, but that doesn’t mean winter has to make it easy.

This month we said our first hellos to brand new family, brand new friends.

And this month we said our last goodbyes to others.crocus

Spring always comes, life always goes on, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy.

    Epic pictures! Happy Spring!

  2. Beautiful! And life I think is richer and sweeter for all that struggle..cold and heat, life and death, hellos and long goodbyes. But bittersweet for sure!

    Your words and images are so beautifully chosen…
    Spring always wins out in the end… but you’re right, its coming is never smooth or predictable.

    Oh Jessie. This is so lovely my dear friend. I’m so grateful that I saw it. You have a way with words and pictures and what you write resonates with me deeply. It has been a long winter. I have been hibernating. You are in my thoughts and my heart always. I miss you tremendously.

    Not only do you write well and take beautiful photographs, Jessie, you also have an understanding worth sharing. Thanks.

      I’m glad you think so. Sometimes I’m not sure if what I have to say is worth saying I just know *I’ll* feel better once it’s written down. ❤
