Springtime Is Here!

Springtime is here

From Winter to Springtime

From winter to springtime, what a difference a few months can make! It has been months since we’ve had any color on our trees or in our gardens.

Springtime with new tree leaves

“That is one good thing about this world…there are always sure to be more springs.” ~L.M. Montgomery

springtime in tree blooms

Winter brings much needed dormancy to our trees. During winter, the tree roots go deep, preparing for blooming canopies in spring, and enlarged canopies for summer fruit bearing.

Springtime Vegetable Gardens

Winter brings much needed rest for our gardens. The vegetable gardens can compost and replenish their minerals in preparation for a bountiful harvest the following summer. The roses send their roots deeper to assemble bountiful rose blooms from spring through fall. The flower beds ready their banquet table for a profusion of blooms arranged exquisitely to entice the eyes with beauty and the nose with fragrance.

Springtime Rose Garden

“Everything is new in the spring. Springs themselves are always so new, too. No spring is ever just like any other spring. It always has something of its own to be its own peculiar sweetness.” ~L.M. Montgomery

Springtime in Flowering Bushes

We also need winter’s rest to refresh our spirit and restore our soul. Spring’s fresh breeze, budding trees and blooming flowers awaken us to the Lord’s Presence, mercy and love.

“Satisfy us in the morning with your loving kindness, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.” ~Psalm 90:14 WEB

  1. Definitely! A few months can make an awesome difference in our surroundings outdoors. I love when spring arrives and everything comes back to life, it is so inspiring! Thanks so much for linking up at the Short Story Prompt 29. Pinned.

    1. Yes, Dee, springs arrival is so inspiring! I so enjoy all the bright colors and the fresh fragrances carried by the wind.

  2. Beautiful post, Lisa … and I love the L.M. Montgomery quotes. We had a really dry winter, but most things still seem to be coming back to life in my flower beds, so I’m happy. I’m reading “Garden Maker” by Christie Purifoy right now and that is REALLY putting me in the mood to get outside. 🙂

    1. I’m so glad your flower beds are coming back to life, Lois. It’s amazing how reading about gardening can inspire us to “create” once again with the Master Gardener. Have fun outside!

  3. I used to get impatient over winter (especially long ones), but now I value all the things you mention—deep growth, quietude, time to reflect and replenish for new seasons.

    1. Winter is a time for our roots to go deeper just as the trees and plant roots go deeper, Anita. I’m thankful for each season He gives us.

  4. Beautiful post, Lisa. I love the quotes and lovely photos inviting me into spring! I used to become impatient with winter, but am learning the value of each season. Spring is bringing such delightful color to our yard and the promise of blessed times in the garden!

    1. Yes, each season brings value to our lives, Donna, but I’m so thankful for the fresh vibrant colors of Spring!
