Springtime brings new life and new growth to the trees and plants around us.It is an exciting time.
Those trees that stood grey and lifeless all winter, suddenly push out new leaves.
Each of these new leaves look fresh and vibrant, ready to grow and give shade to all who take the time to sit , stand or even lie down under that tree.
I know that even in southern Manitoba, it has felt more like the middle of summer the last few days, but in reality, according to the calendar we are still in spring.
I find joy and hope in each new leaf.
I share these pictures, in hopes that you too will see them as a promise of new life and hope.
This may well be my favourite shot in this collection, although, I do like them all.
Even the ferns have a special beauty, as they unfurl those fronds to drink in the rain and bask in the sunshine.
Each leaf has beauty and the Lupin leafs is no exception. I had watered my garden and saw how the tiny droplets clung to the edges of the leafs, decorating them like jewels.
Something To Think About:
Our Lord has written the promise of resurrection, not in books alone but in every leaf of springtime.
