“A Solstice Promise”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana
Well, today marks the winter solstice, the longest night of the year. It will only be a few days until we can discern that the days are slowly getting longer and Mother Nature gives us the promise of spring. As I walked about the garden today and was looking at a few buds, I was struck by the idea that even in the dead of winter, there is another promise – of colorful flowers.
So, even though today is the start of winter and tonight is the longest night of the year, there still are signs that there is life out in the garden.
