Spring Hopes? . . . Only if you Look Up.

HopeforSpring

“April Showers bring May Flowers” …. isn’t that what they say? In Minnesota, we are still waiting for Spring. April is here, our winter snows are melting extremely slowly … A glance outside and anyone would think that it was January or February … the ground still has several feet of snow covering it and the snow piles from the plows are still taller than I am.

To make things worse … it snowed yesterday about 4 more inches. (giant sighs of frustration could be heard in the wintery wind all across the north country).

As I desperately searched for signs of Spring a only found a few subtle sights when I looked up. Returning birds (wondering why they did not wait a bit longer to come back) and shy Maple tree buds.
