Today is May Day, and the blustery winds off Lake Superior are doing their best to prevent Spring from fully showing herself. Patience must be a virtue when waiting for Spring in northern Minnesota. We are well into April before the first colorful signs appear.
A world in miniature comes alive as the longer days of (at least periodic) sunshine warm the ground.
Delicate blossoms unfold themselves on the drab floor of last year’s greenery.
Scilla, crocus, snowdrops … the welcome first signs of renewal after the never-ending cold, gray months of winter.
April is a promise that May is bound to keep. ~ Hal Borland
