"January, February and March are like prison walls to the spirit;
April comes as a window opened, admitting sunlight and a patch of blue sky: then
May bursts, the rainbow of the months, sent as a sign - a promise of fruition"
The National Magazine May 1899
After the great flood in Noah's day, which only he, his family and 2 of every living creature survived in the ark, God made a powerful covenant with Noah saying:
" From now on, whenever a cloud rise over the earth and a rainbow appears in the sky, I (God) will remember My covenant - My promise I have made between Me and all living creatures, no waters will ever again turn onto a flood powerful enough to destroy all living creatures.
Look for the rainbow and remember My promise"
As my first quote suggested, one's spirit may have felt trapped in the cold months. We were now entering a second year of the Covid virus which was markedly having an increased isolating effect on the peoples of the world. But then came the vaccine which brought signs of hope. And now we are in May and many are receiving the second dose of vaccine.
Wally and I took walks all through the winter months but as spring arrived and days were so much brighter I think we walked with lighter steps.

flowers beds and a dozen pots and a few herbs.
