Mind-winter blooms for the Mid-winter Blues

Life always finds a way, even in mid-winter. I am heartened that I can see signs of growth, of season, of change in my garden. They remind me that however dark, cold, and miserable the mid-winter blues can be, the end is on the horizon - this has reason and this too shall pass. "To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven" - Ecclesiastes 3.1.
