First Flowers!

These are the "dog" days of winter when I long for warm sunshine and green -leafed trees and they still seem so far away.
But these delicate little flowers push up through autumn's dead leaves and through winter's snow to bring us the promise of spring. Every year it seems like a miracle to me. And I am so grateful!

The photos have inspired me to go out and scratch around in the gardens to see if anything is peeking through the snow covered earth. We have had some warm days and maybe...just maybe I will see a tiny sign of Spring.
