sleeps in cluster waiting for
the time to awaken and
glow pink against grey.

    The warmth is still coming to us, but my daughter and I were looking at the buds on our apple, plum, quince, and lilac trees (bushes?) that are forming. We’ll definitely have some nice lilac blooms in future months.

      I envy you the lilac – one of my favorites. it is still rainysleetysnowy here and the branches of trees are parsimonious with their buds.

        Your envy might not last too long– there is worry here that there might be a drought. We didn’t have much snow, rain, or other precipitation, and I believe it was such for most of our state. (Perhaps even Seattle. I’m not sure.)

    Reblogged this on Teacher as Transformer and commented:
    It is kind of a cool and breezy day in Spokane. Nature is its own boss and decides on rules humans do not impose. In this way, spring does come slowly, but it is a gentle awakening and healthy. The world has been meditating and is ready to be fully visible.
