Hope... it's a good thing.
Waaaaay back... near the end of January, I pulled into my driveway and thought that I caught a glimpse of these daffodils popping out of the ground.
But that didn't seem right, it was still January after all.
I thought that perhaps the daffodils were being a tad presumptuous,
certainly it wasn't time for Spring flowers yet!
Sure enough, the snow fell and fell and fell some more.
Heaps and heaps of snow were piled on top of those silly daffodils.
I was hopeful that they wouldn't die under there.
Now that the snow has mostly melted, I found the daffodils again,
a bit battered and bent, but still there,
and I am hopeful that they will grow and bloom soon.
The raindrops on this very gray day give me hope.
I am hopeful that the weather will continue warming up
and that any precipitation we get will only be rain and not snow.
And this robin!
A sure sign that Spring is nearly here.
That makes me hopeful.
I'm also hoping that this silly, little camera will have a big brother soon.
One that has a bigger zoom and a few more mega-pixels.
Yep! I'm very, very hopeful that that will happen soon!!!
