"Winter's in labor and soon will give birth to the spring..."
Angeline by Mickey Newbury

I awoke before daybreak one morning last week and went outside. I caught the scent of spring, it is on it's way.

Last night we visited a garden center and I had to stop at the roses, smell the Meyer lemon blooms and the English lavender. I took a  piece of each of these and put them in the pocket of my purse that still held a piece of very dry but still wonderfully aromatic piece of a pine tree from early December.

The trees in our garden are just beginning to blossom. It's all very exciting :)

Though with such a mild winter this year, it almost feels as though we skipped it all together. A bit disconcerting!
