Spring is always a welcoming reminder of renewal and newness. The months of a black and white canvas is replaced by a new pallet of color. Last year’s perennials, sent into dormancy at winter’s harsh command; slowly emerge bigger and better than ever. Where last spring there were three daffodils blooming, now there are five! Pruned trees push forth new growth. Bareness turns into beauty. Every rainstorm followed, by the warm sun breaking through, makes new blooms seem to magically appear. Spring encourages us to make a fresh start, plant a few flowers or a new tree or shrub…and push on
If you are in the Leesburg, Virginia area the next couple of days, join me in welcoming spring at Monroe Technology Center’s annual spring plant sale where you can purchase a plant and help a student start off their college career with a scholarship. And may you be blessed and experience a touch of renewal and newness as you stroll through the gardens and greenhouse.
