Dreaming About Spring

Wednesday evening.....
I really don't think I've ever had such a vivid dream about Spring....everywhere I looked at LM's house there were bulbs popping their shoots out of the ground. There were even plants throughout his house, and, in his car, bursting their shoots through soil!
My analytical mind had me digging yesterday morning for the symbolism of the dream....foolish, huh? After all, we know there is no rhyme or reason in our dreams, but certainly after this winter we're having, the "Spring dream" seemed very grounded. I'm craving green, signs of new growth, and time in the garden to move the soil, and feel the warmth of the sun. The reality of hope regarding John's future also came forth as a possibility for the dream.

Meanwhile, back to reality, snow is falling outside my office window, and each day I take a little break to tend to my office "garden," consisting of an orchid, an African violet (very happy in its southern exposure window), a poinsettia, and two old peace lilies, still blooming on occasion.

The spirit is an amazing force.......wishing you all stirrings of spring if only in your hearts.

Your dream meant you are looking for a new beginning--let the old things pass away. Possibly the whole thing with John has you dreaming this?.

My heart is stirring like crazy for a little sign of spring. We did have about 25 Robins in the front yard last weekend...but then Montana Girl saw some too, and Robins don't live there...maybe Mother Nature is playing funny tricks on all of us!! Today we HAVE SUN AND IT'S 35!! What a nice gift from Mother Nature!! ...debbie

Hi Debbie & Judy....I think about now we are all yearning for renewal, new beginnings, etc. Nature's cycle seems slow with all the storms we've had.
Have a great weekend!

Oh yes - I dream of Spring continually. No green shoots here.
Just in my dreams :)

What a good dream! It reminds me of a rhyming book I used to read to my kids when they were little, Miss Mouse's Garden, in which the garden plants grow all through the house.

We've had flocks of hearty northern robins here in Eastham.

A southern exposure makes all the difference for house plants. I hope spring comes soon for you.
