Last weekend Big D celebrated beautiful temperatures and sunny days and this beautiful snapdragon was full of buds and ready to bloom. On Tuesday that changed dramatically when the thermometer dropped to the teens and much to our surprise everything took on a frozen, shiny hue. Just like mother nature can surprise us, sometimes, life takes you for turns unexpectedly into the frozen zone. It may seem as though there is no way out and things look bleak, but always keep in mind that spring is right around the corner and everything will again have a new beginning very soon. In our warm home, we cheerfully watch our hyacinths peer out of the soil, ready to take on the world with their fragrant smell and exquisite blooms. Life holds the same hopefulness of a new spring each time the road gets iced over. So hang in there, and spring will again be around the corner.
