Mother Nature presents seasons like acts in a play. Occasionally drawing the curtain ever so slightly to yield a glimpse of what is yet to come...
Below the stage sits the orchestra, instruments ready tuning and practicing softly... preparing for the accompaniment .The old season may linger not yet mellowed to share the stage with Spring.But she has a predilection to dominate the performance and will not remain in seclusion much longer.
And so with the melting of the snow, the drawing of the curtain one can observe little green shoots of the snowdrops peeking out from the cold, dark earth. The birdsong, the orchestra takes on a more alluring pitch... eventually filling the garden with its symphony. The sun will shine brightly casting down its warmth.Nest building is waiting in the wings complimenting the performance.
Soon spring will surround us and we'll be shrouded in her beauty once more...
