This is just a peek at the plants peeking at me.
The above is my Chinese rose of many colors.
My garden is only 1/3 if that begun.
Below is an ugly embankment that faces my front door. I plan to put a fishing lake there (one day).
The wisteria was a brilliant purple that my camera failed to capture.
ODE TO THE DANCE OF LIFE
The beauty that is yet to come plays the illusive dance of spring. Plants peep and test the water with a petal to make sure old man winter/frost has left the building. I wish that I could be more reasuring to the cautious child of spring 08, but I, myself have to check to see if today is a coat day or a no sleeves day.
Oh, but the joy of newness and all of the trials of growing that is faced by us all. Be bold, be couragous, and dare to grow. There may still be a danger of a sting of unpleasant cold/frost that may threaten to bite your tenderness. But oh, how far ahead of the game you will be, full of your glory and maturity, if you dare to live now in your time and your season.
Spring forth now. Push the dirt of life that protects and restrict all at once and make your presence known. Face the sun and shine. Someone waits for you, prays for you, and will never be the same once they have met you. A eye of hope searches for you, because if you are willing to continue the dance of life, maybe they can too.
