While she decided to take her good old time and smell everything, I struggled to keep my patience, all the while hoping she would complete the task at hand. While I waited I glanced at the flower bed near the studio door. I wondered when the 4 rose bushes would start to turn green. As I dazed at the debris in the garden I saw purple. 'What type of weed would grow and bloom now?" As I looked closer at the 'weeds' I recognized the blooms of crocus. (Insert happy dance!)
I took Sadie back inside and dried her off. I went and grabbed my camera to snap these pictures to remind us all that even though there are snow flurries mixed with rain, there are beautiful signs of spring, if we only take the time to look.
Spring will be here on March 20th, just 25 days from today.
