Spring can be a season of promises by Mother Nature.
It can also be filled with surprises. You know the sort. Open the windows to pleasant temperatures one day and scrape frost off the car in the morning.
Humans need to remember a few things about spring.
First: we are not in charge of the calendar.
Second: farming (and gardens) are a specialized form of gambling.
Third: Mother Nature has a sense of humor.
Jokes aside, the buds on the trees and the shoots of spring bulbs and future flowers contain a promise of longer sunny days and warmer air to come.
Take a moment to enjoy the present and future in this bed of bulbs.
