Promise of Spring
Because the promise of Spring is right around the corner, here are some beautiful Irises as a reminder of the hope of the coming season....
Now is the springtime and the bounty of heaven is pouring on earth and the fields and rose-gardens are in growth and development. Exert thyself as much as thou canst, in order that through this everlasting bounty and the sprinklings of the clouds of the divine gift, thou mayest grow and thrive like unto a fruitful tree, with the utmost freshness and purity.
(Abdu'l-Baha, Tablets of Abdu'l-Baha v1, p. 207)
