Any Time, Spring…Any Time.

Flowers on the beachI was flipping through some old photographs and came upon this shot of some flowers on Omaha Beach in Normandy, France.  I took this picture in 2008.

More than thinking about the trip itself, the photograph placed a longing in my heart for the return of spring here in Indiana.

From my desk, I can see a skiff of snow on the front yard.  The winter clouds are moving past in the cold breezes of February.  I long for the warmth of spring sun to melt the snow, soften the earth and give rise to the many flowers planted around our home.  I ache for the sound of robins claiming their territory and the roll of thunder as spring showers nourish the landscape.

But for now, a picture will have to do.  For now, memories will suffice.
