Spring through and through

"Green shoots."

"Crocuses in the lawn."

"Sprouts of green."

These are actual phrases I've heard npr commentators and Ben Bernacke himself use to describe favorable signs in the economy. Don't you love it? Spring thaws the ground, warms the buds, grows the economy, reminds us of the Savior, gives us hope for better days.


  1. Even though it's trite, I love the phrase "April showers bring May flowers." Because my b-day is in April, and I love rain.

  2. I agree Jen--it's overused because it's so true.
