They are always short-lived.
One always knows that winter has lost and warmth is spreading over the face of the land. The small shoots of green are rising from their sleep.
And so, the snow can be enjoyed because we know it will not stay.
For a time this afternoon I could barely see to the end of the back yard. But now it has stopped and the sun is warming each snow decorated branch and twig.
Soon there will be snowdrops all about, and crocuses, sweet violets, hyacinth, and our own daffodils.
Soon we will be able to walk the Daffodil Trail and see some of the more than 40,000 daffodils planted there in our Summit County park. I hope I remember my camera! This beautiful park began at the edge of the property of our first home on Fox Run Drive in Richfield, Ohio, and we could walk through the woods for nearly an hour and through the daffodil trails and also, in good time , look down on a river of Virginia Blue Bells blooming alongside Furnace Run Creek. It won’t be long now.
