Dreaming of Spring

It’s snowing today. Like most of the the eastern part of the country we have been having record cold temperatures. Sitting here today, it’s practically unbelievable that the days warmed up to 40 degrees just two weeks ago.  Tuesday night is supposed to see wind chills around -30.

These are flowers from my garden last season.  As beautiful as the snow is, I miss having my hands in the dirt.  I know, however, that all of this snow is very necessary for a lush garden in the spring.  This snow is what will water my garden and tell those little plants and bulbs to send up their new shoots.

While I wait, I’ll just have to grab a blanket, a cup of something hot, and another good book.  And while I sorely miss gardening, reading may just be my very favorite thing to do.  I guess waiting for spring isn’t such a bad thing after all.

    Thanks for the reminder that spring will eventually make its appearance. It’s hard to think of spring right now as I woke up in Illinois this morning with a temperature of -1 and letting the kids sleep in because school was already canceled last night due to forecasted sub-zero temps and wind chill today. I’m so thankful I have the option of not leaving the house at all today.

      I was feeling the same thing. I just couldn’t post another picture of snow. It’s that end-of-January-tiredness. We’ve almost made it! When will spring arrive in Illinois? I’m waiting for that groundhog. lol

    What beautiful flowers! We’re expecting snow here, too, and we NEVER get snow. I’m looking forward to spring as well – by that time, the new baby will be old enough to take some stroller walks in the lovely Georgia springtime weather!

      A new baby to push around in a stroller? Sounds like a wonderful reason to want springtime to arrive!

      I hope your family was safe during the snow that Georgia received!
