Spring in Full Swing?
We just lit the the rose candle of our Advent wreath, signifying the third week of Advent...but outside it feels more like Easter! A very warm Easter, too. It's not just us, either. The plants also seem confused. Many of our spring flowers are popping up. Sr. Maria Teresa's Dutch Iris is currently in the lead at almost a foot tall, but Sr. Mary Ana's daffodil is not far behind! It is strange to see flowers that are usually separated by seasons now growing side by side! Sr. Joseph Maria was surprised to discover Black-eyed Susans blooming next to emerging Easter Lilies in her garden. Will we have lovely spring blooms in a few weeks? And what does this bode for the real spring garden?
