Sign of Spring

Here in UpState New York we yearn for signs of spring on this 11th day of April with a cold rain coming down and temperatures in the 30's. Observe this brave crocus bringing color and hope to all on this dreary and gray day.
"The earth sings a song of gladness.
The earth sings a song of praise.
The earth rises up and laughs at me
Each time that I forget
How spring begins with winter
And death begins with birth."
(from a poem by Nancy Wood)
