Every year I look for the first Spring planters as a harbinger of warmer weather and pleasant days ahead!
This week I spotted the first planters and it made me so happy. I took this picture yesterday, and while it was overcast at times, it was 60 degrees and that felt WONDERFUL! The rest of the trees might be bare now, but I see the buds forming and all of the tulip/daffodil shoots that are slowly emerging from the ground, and I know a Spring bloom is just around the corner!
As we leave behind Winter and enter Spring, it is always a good time to stop for a moment of self reflection on the past season. In my own life, this winter certainly had its challenges, but through those challenges I learned a lot! I enter Spring feeling optimistic that this will be a time of tremendous growth and opportunity and I am excited to see all that this season has in store!
