In the light of recent world events, it’s a good time to remember that out of bleakness comes brilliance. Renewal is one of the greatest miracles! Sometimes when looking at the bigger picture, hope appears futile. But focusing on the tiniest things, the smallest changes, can make anything seem possible!
In our little microcosm of Todd’s Backyard, we experienced the most devastating winter since we’ve lived here.

With the advance of spring, the temperatures are warming and the days are getting a little longer. Finally we are seeing those small signs of life that will start to aleviate our winter woes.

And for anyone reading this that isn’t familiar with the Jactus, this is what we can expect in about 6 weeks….
And life goes on….
