“Where flowers bloom so does hope.” – Lady Bird Johnson

With winter beginning to wane, we welcome Spring and the vibrant colors and smells the season brings. The change in seasons refreshes our senses and renews the soul.

“In Bloom” evokes images of leaves sprouting and plants flowering; the environment waking from a cold sleep. But it is also a useful metaphor for the growth and vigor and change we find in ourselves.

Leaving 2020 behind, what are the “seeds” you planted in the New Year that you are hoping to grow in this season of transition and transformation? What blooms in your literal or metaphorical environment?
