"Under the giving snow blossoms a daring spring."
~Terri Guillemets ~
It is not the outdoor temperature and the threat of snow that dictates the establishment of spring in the world, but the light. It is the length of days and the height of the sun that urges daffodils upward and grows buds on trees. Spring is here. It's a subtle layer of color in branches and bushes. It's in the sky, and in the shedding winter coats of animals and the awakening of bears from their dens.
     So who cares whether we have yet another snowstorm? It will not linger long. If we look around we can see it. Spring is here!

I don't gripe about spring snowfalls. I celebrate the light of longer days instead.
