She turned to the sunlight
And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbor:
"Winter is dead."
~~A.A. Milne When We Were Very Young
It is spring again.
The earth is like a child that knows poems by heart.
~~Rainer Maria Rilke

Frost here this morning, but the promise of a Spring day as dawn breaks and the sun begins to shine. Lovely succulent. Nature makes such pretty patterns. Every blessing to you and yours.
