Resilience

No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow. ~Proverb

Brave little flowers.
Warmth came too fast; cold followed.
Thrives nevertheless.

  1. Oh, I’m so sorry. That’s what fruit growers here worry about. Strawberries can take a late cold, but peaches that have bloomed but then experience a late freeze are in trouble. Good for these, to keep right on blooming. Sometimes I think even the plants are ready for spring!

    • I was really concerned about this one. In fact, I took a photo earlier and wrote a sad Haiku about it before realizing that it was perking up! I’m glad I held off for a change — seeing this tree’s strength gives me hope that spring is right around the corner!

  2. Debbie, doesn’t amaze you how resilient and determined nature is, in spite of how confusing the weather has been this year?

    Great Haiku! And I love your photograph!

    I spent yesterday out in the suburbs of Philadelphia and visited several outside garden shops, and I was delighted to see so many Spring flowers in bloom. I took a lot of photographs which I will be sharing soon. :)

    Have a super Sunday, my friend!

    • I’m so eager to see your spring photos, Ron — I know they’ll be gorgeous!

      You’re right, of course. The weather this year has been strange, to say the least. We had a bitterly cold spell early on, causing most of us to fear it was going to be a long and snowy winter, but that didn’t happen. I feel a tad sorry for those who truly enjoy snow because they missed out this time!

      My daffodils came up, but I haven’t seen a single flower. What’s going on with that?? Yet here this weeping cherry is a mass of blooms. And the grass is the most fabulous shade of green!!

      Happy new week to you! xo

    • I think that’s why so many people are sick, FF. Colds, allergies, viruses … all rather rampant because our bodies just can’t get acclimated to so much change. Hope things settle down pretty soon!

    • Glad you enjoyed it, Christy — and glad to see your smiling face here!! Which reminds me, I’d better hop on over to see what you’ve been up to!
