We seek out the sun's warmth and huddle under winter bedding at night. We've not even had a frost in our area of town this year, yet early mornings are still chilly. The birds sing of spring, all winter long.
Miss E was very happy to be pushed into the pool this afternoon, no need to wait for spring, yet she was also equally pleased to have a warm shower only minutes later!
Our lemon tree is laden with its best crop yet, and so is our avocado tree. The gerberas and camellia bushes flower beautifully. Even a couple of jonquils have graced us with their amazing scented flowers. All of these are wonderful reminders of God's goodness and a satisfying result of many a planting I've made over the years - even if the nurturing has been hit and miss. You have to sow if you want to reap, and keep on sowing for sometimes you don't know where or when the return will come - but it will surely come.
