When Christmas ends, I find it difficult to put everything away so a red tablecloth stays on the table and red candles abound. This morning though when I went to pick up the dishes, I knew it was time. I pulled out a yellow tablecloth, trimmed with blue, and placed a golden candle in the holder. I went around and switched all candles to ivory, yellow, and gold. I watered dry plants. Poinsettias still bloom and the light is shifting. Though soft, there is more of it each day.
Spring comes to my soil and soul.
