The Garden Sleeps
Deep in slumber, under the weight of the snow
the garden sleeps, waiting,
frozen in the ground, dormant
Everything in its season, in God’s time
waiting for new light, new life,
the warming of a new season of growth
The charting of a new course, a new chapter
in the story of life, the life of creation;
all while the garden sleeps
--Raymond A. Foss
March has come in like neither a lion nor a lamb, but more like a wily fox. Snow flurries are forecast for tonight, but temperatures are slowly climbing and may be in the 40's (F) by week's end. We've been known to have blizzards in March, but we've also had teases of spring weather in this month. Who knows what this year will be like, but at least there is the promise of spring at hand, and I know that it won't be long until scenes like the one above will soon turn into something like that pictured below. I can't wait!
