This one is for my friends in the Northeastern US, who got slammed by yet another snowstorm and many have lost power for a day or two (or more). March is definitely a hard month to endure such hard weather, I remember being so over it by end of February when I lived up there. So, today I took a walk around my neighborhood here in Gainesville and I am sending you all hope for better weather and a reminder that Spring will eventually come, even to Boston.
The trees will bud out, bringing those fabulous greens and pinks that are such a treat for eyes that have seen nothing but white and grey for so long.
Spring green really is the best color. It’s not really a color to me after enduring northeast winters, it’s a state of happiness that bursts out in my heart when I see the first buds, the earliest signs that warmer weather and thawing out is really on its way.
Maybe after this storm, my friends, you will see those little crocus tips bravely pushing up through the snow, and then the first tulips can’t be far behind. We don’t have either of those flowers down here, at least as far as I’ve seen, so here’s a little purple reminder that your flowers will soon be showing their colors.
Hang in there, my friends. May you get power and then warmth to melt the snow and then Spring to warm your hearts. Meanwhile, maybe this helps.
“She turned to the sunlight
And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbor:
“Winter is dead.”
