Despite the challenges and obstacles, we've arrived at day 23. Congratulations! Spring has sprung, daffodils are blooming, snow will eventually stop falling, and we are pushing forward. Yay for us!
Spring is my favorite season. Can you tell? Watching my beloved lilac, lilies, and dahlias come back to life and bloom brings me tremendous joy. At the same time, I realize that much work awaits me in the garden.
Growing flowers reminds me so much of writing novels. Ideas can blossom into spectacular stories, but in order to thrive they must have an abundance of sunlight, the right food, regular water, and sometimes, painful pruning. First drafts must be properly nurtured to become the bright, fragrant, amazing books that we envision them to be. That takes loads of time, effort, and energy, doesn't it?
My hope is that everyone's hard work this month will flourish and keep growing into something breathtaking and stunning.
What do you love about this time of year? Do you feel the excitement?
I hope you all enjoy a delightful day. See you over at Shari's tomorrow!
