Each year it is a delight to find this in my yard. It is a promise that winter will not last forever.
The rest of the yard looks like this
The sky is gray, the trees are bare and the wind is chilly.
These are the days that make me long for spring.
Mitsubishi is ready for spring too. Yes, that is really her name.
The winter day arrives when this harsh and cold season seems endless, and you look out the window to see something green.
The wild turnips are blooming, another reminder that spring is not far away.
These short cold days will not last forever.
These promises of spring up from the cold dead ground.
