Winter’s Grip is Letting Go

I don’t really care what the forecasters might say.  Winter’s Grip is Letting Go.  The day length is increasing and the trees know it.  The birds know it, too.  It won’t be long before winter is replaced by the season of singing.

See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land.  (Song of Solomon 2:11-12)

As I was celebrating the morning by watching another spectacular sunrise, I noticed something that only a horticulturist would notice.  Compared to sunrises a month ago, the lengthening days are encouraging the buds on the trees to begin swelling.  Within the next 2-3 weeks, the sap will begin running, maple syruping season will start, and the parade of early spring bloomers will appear.  Be encouraged.  Winter’s Grip is Letting Go.
