Apple Leaves coming out

If you have the time to look, there are lots of tiny things in my garden just about to burst to life.

We are nearly ready, they say, just give us a few more moments. Flower Buds

Having hibernated for so long, I also feel that I am ready for a new phase in my life, whatever that might be. Anxious for new beginnings, getting a little bit restless while waiting – “are we not nearly there yet”?

Cherry Buds

But at the same time, I know that I too might need a few more quiet moments before I am truly ready to burst to life.
