Bloomin' Vinca

My pretty evergreen ground cover, Vinca (or myrtle) - has some beautiful purple flowers on it today.

What's the deal? Is there something I haven't been told?
Did I miss something?

Like - did I sleep through winter and spring is here?!?
Woo Hoo!

Oh . . if that were only true.
Alas, I think the Vinca may be in for a shock.
Snow is forecast in a couple days.

Wait! I know.
It's giving me it's 'last hoorah' for the season.

A purple symbol (my favorite color, you know)
Saying "Hang in there. We'll be back soon!"

Maybe the message is . . . . .
Winter won't last forever.

That's it!
Winter doesn't last forever!

Thank you, God, for the reminder:
Whatever "winter" might be for me personally . . .
it won't last forever.
