New growth springing up all around.

There may be ice on the patio and snow mixing with rain, but spring is coming. You can see it everywhere. The geese are honking and chasing each other. Little daffodils are popping out. Green grass is shooting up.

Bundled up against the chill, I took a tour of our wonderful Chines Garden. You could see new growth springing up and out. The magnolia trees were blossoming against the sunshine.

Even in the studio, you can see the change. Shelves are bursting with new work, ready for the first firing. Bowls and mugs are growing brightly painted with green leaves and red buds.

It’s still officially winter, the time of darkness and germination. But the sun is out and new growth is peaking through. What’s springing forth in your life right now?
