The Hope of Spring

May 3, 2013 § Leave a comment

Spring always comes delayed in the northern latitudes. This year it came even more delayed. As a result, it is just in the last week of April that we have seen the much-longed for appearance of the first wild white and blue anemones and coltsfoot. Nature around you is carefully awakening to the fact that the mantle of snow is over and that the promise of warmth is a reality. The landscape is brownish: the whiteness gone, but the green is yet to come. Then suddenly, very small white, blue and yellow heads start popping up all over. First just one or two, then a few  more and after a couple of sunny days, entire areas are blanketed with these fantastic creatures. They are just beautiful and makes them special is their color contrast against the brown underground of decayed leaves. Want any better sign for new things to come?
