Outside, everything is white! It’s beautiful, but, it is March 23rd! The tulips are 4 or 5 inches out of the ground and the daffodils even more. There are signs of buds on trees and the rabbits have been making their presence. The first day of spring arrived a day or two ago and then Mother Nature decides she is bored and wants to play a trick on us all. Very funny Mother Nature, you got us good! I think I heard her quiet laugh as she finds delight in the reaction from those of us who thought we had conquered winter.
Every branch balances an inch of pure white from its trunk to the tip of its tiniest twig. And the branches blend in with the sky that is absent of blue, And the ground, covered in pure white, absent of green, reflects the great whiteness above it. It is calming, it is cleansing, it is pure, pure white … it’s beautiful, but, it is March 23rd.
