|Thank you to Two Writing Teachers for hosting this annual challenge.|
I visited my trees, as I do every March, to see how they're doing and whisper wishes of warmth. Usually their grey branches need some waking up at this time of year, and I like to give them that encouragement. What I found today both surprised and delighted my heart. While the winter denied us a snow day, it granted early growth and green, open buds. Soon, they will fluff out their pink feathers of flowers, and the sun will turn our world into a rainbow of color. Thanks to my walk and discovery, I no longer mourn the loss of winter white. I am ready to spring forward.
