Reading the Signs

Last week there were still patches of snow on the ground. this morning the Daylily greens have exploded from little green shoots into broadleaves.

I don’t think of day lilies as signs of spring. They grow quickly, exploding into a mass oof orange and red.  And, as soon as  their giant orange blooms fade, it’s almost time to start shopping for school supplies. 

The sturdy greens are really reminders of how fleeting and precious is time.
