Resilience Posted on March 26, 2017 by Debbie No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow. ~Proverb Brave little flowers. Warmth came too fast; cold followed. Thrives nevertheless. Related
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!
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
Nature is so often our very best teacher, isn’t she?
Indeed! We can learn so much if we’ll just keep our eyes — and hearts — open to the lessons.
The picture you added is really beautiful and your haiku is too good 👍
Thank you so much for the lovely compliment, Monika — it’s awfully kind of you to say so!!
Thanks so much, John! 😉
Love the haiku! It’s been the same here this year – warm, cold, warm, cold – the poor plants don’t know what they’re supposed to be doing!
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!
The resiliency of nature is wonderful and you spotlight it well in your haiku!!
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!
Thankful for their heartiness, Debbie. The blooms here seem to be holding up, as well.
Thank you, ma’am! We’re a little away from full-blown spring, but it’s coming — and I’m ready to greet it!
Wonderful photo, Debbie. I love the beauty and resilience of nature, it is so inspiring.
I couldn’t agree more — have a beautiful day, Lana!
What a beautiful tree. It seems to embody the grace and beauty of a ballerina. Absolutely lovely!
It’s not the tree we thought we were getting, but it is lovely especially during Spring!
