The white ducks came back to our yard after spending the winter downstream. They took a dip in the pond. We wanted to be outdoors enjoying this balmy day as well. The girls were feeling good and went out to the swings. And as I walked down to the pond I saw dark green clusters of daffodil leaves lining the woods. I took a closer look and saw that the buds are about to bloom. In what looks like the dead of winter, and after all the ice and snow, spring is silently getting ready to gear up and burst forth. Bring it on, Lord!
