Where we live, in northern Alberta snows stills sits on the ground. I know this is true for many other parts of Canada as well.
Therefore, since we don't see the tulips pushing through the cold ground or see the grass revealed, trampled and worn from the heavy snow of winter as many do in less northern climates do. We can still experience the feeling of spring.
Colour, life, freshness, and renewal are the gifts each spring shares with us. We have cycled through the hibernating energy of winter. It is now time to shine with renewed sense of wonder, of life.
This is how I feel when I experience spring in a vase.
How does spring affect you?
