MIRACLES ON THE DOORSTEP

Spring comes along and it happens before our eyes. Without us lifting a finger, things grow.


Take the trees around us. On Monday last the branches hardly showed signs of life. Looking closer and you could see the tiniest buds. By Friday the branches had sprouted full-grown leaves. (see photo: taken Friday)


The whole wooded area has come alive in those few days. You can’t even watch the actual growth happening around you.


Grass sprouts up and weeds as well. A miracle for sure without us doing a thing to help.


Mind you, there is a schedule for everything. Maple leaves are the first to blossom, leaving the oaks looking as if they may not make it this year. It takes them a little longer before life returns to them.


Author’s comment: It’s one of those mornings where you step outside and breath in, realizing that the usual nip in the air is gone. You feel the warmth touch your skin. And life seems to begin all over again. It’s damn fine being alive, you tell yourself. And let’s make the most of it.
