Being homebound, I’m gazing at the gardens outside our windows that are ever so slowly coming back to life. This is what I look forward to each year. But this year, with all that we are dealing with, these gardens mean more to me than they ever have before. They represent life, as well as hope and faith that they’ll keep coming up every year. And they certainly do.

Enjoy! Love, Nora
