On Buds

Sorry to be obsessing about spring, but yesterday I walked out on my porch to discover that one of my plants/bushes was budding. This was exciting for a number of reasons, but most notably because I didn't know whether this guy would survive the winter or not... and lookie here!

This is particularly invigorating on a day like today as we here in Chicago are enduring the prospect of 30 degree temps and a bit more snow... or at least freezing rain. This is why March is such a deceptive month. You think you're getting there, but you're so not. But, maybe you are. Maybe unexpected buds on the bush remind you as much.
