Hope Renewed #3: More Signs of Life

There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:
...a time to plant and a time to uproot,
...a time to tear down and a time to build,
...a time to keep and a time to throw away....  
                                                                                                 Ecclesiastes Chapter 6


Every day there are new signs of life which is so encouraging.  There are many reasons to celebrate!

Pat has been busy removing dead trees, including an old Redbud tree in our front yard.  There are no fewer than six Iris blooms, and many more to come.  The grape vines are sprouting new growth.  The sunflowers will make a comeback.  Our Desert Willow (bottom left) suffered a setback, but it is leafing out.  We have several small Redbuds that are showing their color.  The Rock Rose (center) and the Knockout Rose are strong as ever.  There is a 70% chance for rain on Monday, and we need it!  Finally, instead of tossing out the Dad Boney's old grill, Pat has re-purposed it as a planter.  I'm hoping to add to the collage soon!
