Awake, Thou Wintry Earth

No matter how long the winter, 
spring is sure to follow"
~Proverb

It has been the longest winter in history 
for all of us in North Dakota. 
We dodged a major winter storm yesterday. 
Some areas received 11" of snow. 
We ended up with about an inch. 
The snow was very pretty this morning.
I captured this photo in our backyard 
here at A Primitive Place. 
I love the contrast 
of winter and spring in this photo.
 


"And spring arose on the garden fair, like the spirit of love felt everywhere; 
And each flower and herb on earth's dark breast rose from the dreams 
of its wintry rest." 
~Percy Bysshe Shelley

I am so ready for summer...but people say we could still get one more falling of snow just to remind us of winter...I hope not.
