Springtime Dreams

This has been a brute of a winter, with temperatures hovering well below freezing and so much snow that the ground has been covered for months. I try my very hardest to appreciate each and every season, knowing that each has its gifts and beauty and purpose, but my patience is wearing and I am longing for winter to pass the torch.

(I do believe that this will be the most marvelous, welcome spring yet. After all this white and cold, the life that appears from every branch, bulb, and nest will bring boundless joy and wonder.)

The forecast is calling for another significant snowfall tonight, so in quiet protest, I'd like to share some photos from last spring. Will you please join me in sending warm, gentle, sunny thoughts to the northern hemisphere?

Did you get that layer of ice last night before the snow even began? Ugh it's awful. I didn't get out of my PJs all day today. There was no point, it's not like I was able to go anywhere.

oh no! i accidentally deleted your comment, sandra - so sorry!

here is the original: "I know how you feel darling. It was the same in Germany, last year. Winter until april, it wasn't nice anymore. But let me tell you: No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn. When spring comes, it comes in full bloom! Sending you lots of warm sunshine :)"
