I don't know about you, but I have been waiting for spring to arrive since...well...September! Not being out and about all winter is incredibly challenging for me, not to mention the health recommendations and joint efforts of everyone to flatten the curve of a virus that has infected our world.
COVID-19 has changed our lives.
I'm so incredibly grateful that Spring isn't cancelled! It's a season of hope, new life, and excitement. Even amid the chaos and shifting landscape, there is something calming and exciting about the snow melting and waiting for the first shoots to poke out of the ground. I look forward to the creative outlet the blank canvas of dirt presents anew every year and the countless hours I spend meandering through my garden, pulling weeds here and trimming a plant there, hoping the rabbits haven't done too much damage over the winter.
Amid chaos, there is still consistency and continuity in our amazing Manitoba seasons.
