Even surrounded by death and decay
Life resolutely unfurls
I love all things green –
but especially the vibrant green of newborn Spring leaves.
Happy Spring everyone!
These soft fluffy silvery catkins
are one of my favourite signs of Spring – what’s yours?
Some people are always grumbling because roses have thorns;
I am thankful that thorns have roses.
~ Alphonse Karr
Something that was beautiful for a season dies
and releases a holy seed
carried away on the breath of God
alight with the promise of new Life.
