{hopeful}

No Winter lasts forever; no Spring skips it's turn. ~


Yesterday we were outside because we had cabin fever awfully bad. We still have about 18 inches of frozen solid snow on most of the yard. I took a little walk around the side of our house and look what I found! My little green garden sign is finally showing itself after being buried for so long, and signs that the snow is melting. The first pussy willows are finally opening. Spring will be arriving soon!

I hope for you, too. We have blossoms on some trees here and the season is so short I know I'll blink and it'll be gone! I'm hoping after a horrible draught last year that we'll have some pretty wildflowers since it has been raining lately...

I look forward to seeing your beautiful spring, Gail!

Blessings~

I opened the door this morning to find a bird sitting and churping in my wreath. Woo hoo!! Only 19 more days until Spring!! Your garden sign in a small patch of grass if perfect!

Oh, thank you for that little glimpse of hope. I'm hanging on to whatever I can get.

I'm so NOT a winter person. And I love my garden. (It was my first child.)

Have a great day!!

Yeah! It IS just around the corner, isn't it? I can't wait to see grass again. It's starting to slowly appear in patches around here. So glad your garden is peeking out. (I can't wait to see the photos.)
