Harbinger of spring

Yes new life

Christmas over, all the good chocs gone it is New Years day and as ever I have started it alone.

I had texts and calls galore. My family love me and that they show. I could not ask for more.

I have always dislike the New Year nothing changes  nothing is new war and illness do not magically stop because it is here.

My body hurt when I awoke shall I stay in bed all day then the conscience kicked and gave me a poke.

So up I got to face another day, 2012  a shiny new year I hear the radio say! Okay I am up now I shall make the effort I shall try. I’ll feed the birds they are waiting outside.

I take the seed and cross the lawn then out of the corner of my eye I see a rose bud has been born.I can hardly believe eyes it so beautiful it makes me cry.

Is it possible could it be is this a message of hope to me . I shall take it for what it is a harbinger of spring. I guess I shall wait and hope , we will see what the new year brings.

    Willow, you are not alone on New years Day, you know that 🙂

    You were sent a rose, you are not alone.

      Yes I agree that is why we call her mother nature , she is wise, but she can be harsh and cruel sometimes. But for now lets focus on her gentler and more compassionate side. Be well, be happy! xxx

    Yes and some of my flowers are springing into life
    also Willowdot, indeed they don’t know what season
    we are in, and neither do the animals and birds…

    I do keep adding food to the suet deck
    and fat balls (Hey Food for Birds :)) and
    of course throwing bread out for them 🙂

    the rose is wonderful Willowdot 🙂
