March's Promise


Yesterday delivered a wet, sloppy snowfall.
The remnants of that icy mix remain on the ground.  

But my heart danced when I noticed 
the first spring-flowering bulbs blooming this morning.
The miniature cyclamens have awoken
from their protected sleep under the Japanese Maple tree.  

Winter in Michigan has not been
very cold or snow-covered this year.
None the less, everyone is anxiously awaiting
some color in the landscape.

 The cheery rose-colored petals of the cyclamens
signal that Spring is indeed on the way!







Until next time, live and love well.

How pretty. There is nothing better than a glimpse of spring on a cold dreary morning.

Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting on my sweet new grandson.

Have a great day.

I was surprised that cyclamin grows in Michigan. I am thrilled. I live in Northern Michigan, Traverse City. Do you plant the ones you can buy at the store? I have them outside in summer in shaded decks, so does this mean I can plant them? Where? In shade I expect ......what do you suggest? Would love to hear from you
