The Real Thing: Hope

daffodilbudmarch3-2010

Here is a photo of the daffodil buds I saw Monday. I took this photo about noon on Wednesday. As a point of reference, this is a photo taken in the same session (the view which was behind me when I took the above photo):

And this is a photo out the window of my front door, taken immediately after I took the above shot (notice the rare and beautiful hint of blue in the sky):

I am not a winter person, though I was born at the end of November and many of my ancestors lived in Norway and Sweden. Last year, the winter seemed to go on forever, even though we visited Florida for a week in February.

This year… no vacation, but it just was not as brutal somehow. I am grateful.

And the buds promise that things are changing, at least in one tiny microclimate in my yard. I think I am going to make it!
