Welcome spring!

"Somehow myself survived the night and entered with the day."
-- Emily Dickinson

This winter has been so gray, gloomy, cloudy, misty, dark and, yes, depressing. At least for me and many of my friends and family members.
But today is the first day of spring! And that prompted me to think  of the Dickinson quote noted above, which has helped me make it through many a challenging time.
Yesterday I wondered around my soggy yard for a bit, because it was so great to be outside with the sun shining. And I discovered these crocuses, which also "survived the night" of winter.
They made me smile, my heart sing.
So celebrate the fact that we have survived winter!
