I’ll give you a few days…

Photobucket

to bask in the sun,
Photobucket

don miniskirts and have picnics on the front lawn,

Photobucket

to play so hard your socks wear out,

Photobucket

and discover green hiding under the muck in the garden.

Photobucket

I’ll give you one bright afternoon where 49 degrees feels like 75 to embellish the sidewalks

Photobucket

and the driveway
Photobucket

with temporary masterpieces,

Photobucket

to gaze at bright blue eyes and skies

Photobucket

to coax rose stems into a gentle arch

Photobucket

and get some serious hangtime.

Photobucket

Winter still reigns supreme in the backyard and we have months of snowstorms ahead

Photobucket

but Spring! is coming

Photobucket

can’t stop her now.

    I know – we’ve been having it, too! I’m terrified to get too excited, but I’d just be oh, so happy to see spring.

    One thing I miss about winter, is the thrill of the first crocus. They don’t bloom here, neither do tulips. Ruth
