ABC Wednesdays letter this week is 'Q'. OUCH! Hard one!
At my favorite place (Trillium Lake) there is this stone plaque on the ground that displays the following quote:
"Sometimes our fate resembles a fruit tree in winter. Who would think those branches would turn green again and blossom, but we hope it, we know it" -- Goethe
This plaque is probably buried under snow about now :(
