It's going to be a long while before we start seeing trees like this in Colorado. I'm trying very hard to stay in the present with the only sign of spring so far being the tender 1/2 inch high daffodil shoots. We are at the very beginning of the "springing of the year".
And give us not to think so far away
As the uncertain harvest; keep us here
All simply in the springing of the year.
from A PRAYER IN SPRING
