Well...in early January they emerged! Such a lovely surprise. They have a very heady fragrance which permeates several feet in all directions. I have them sitting on the triangle behind our kitchen sink where they are a sweet reminder that spring will come here, even though today the snow is melting in the cold rain and it is generally gray and icky outside. It is only a few degrees above freezing. I am hoping the roads will NOT be icy as we head out to church later on.

Friends make the world a joy-filled place. I am so grateful for all my well-beloved ones around the world, and especially for the one who gave me such a friendly gift of spring in the middle of winter.
