All Will be Revealed
I am grateful for the gift of consecutive sunny days, warmer temperatures, and the new growth bursting forth around me. It is magical to be experiencing spring within a garden entirely new to me, one that has been lovingly tended to over the years. As the fresh green shoots from various bulbs emerge here and there, I consider what kinds of flowers might appear. When I walk by the tightly closed rhododendron buds, I speculate on the colour that will eventually be revealed. As I lean in to take a closer look at the dark pink blossoms showing up on some of the bushes, I wonder what they are called. And then, within minutes of sitting down to write this post, a hummingbird arrived to nourish itself at the feeder we brought with us - the first one I have seen here since we moved in, adding an exclamation mark to all of this magnificence. Exquisite timing.
