In response to Velvet Verbosity's 100 Word Challenge, here is my response to the word HIDDEN:
Will it ever get here?
Come late April or early May, Michigan will be alive with flowers; crocuses and tulips and daffodils, iris and day lilies and hyacinths, too. My lavender wil finally bloom so I can bring its fragrant blossoms inside for various purposes: tea, lavender scones, sachets, and drying the blossomed stems for arrangements.
Come late April or early May, the grass will turn the most beautiful shade of green. The trees will bud then, bam, the next day they'll be full of leaves.
But right now? Now we're buried under a blanket of blinding white snow. All of Spring's beginnings are hidden.
