The Countdown

Orange tulip.


We've made it this far with February upon us.

Very soon the crocus will peek-a-boo through the earth.

Soon after that, the tulips will glow along  roadsides and in garden beds.

After a colorless winter,

It will be like a rainbow everywhere we look.

I wait for it every long winter.

Mother Nature rewards us for surviving another cold, snowy season by showing us her breathtaking flowers.
