I’ve spent the last 24 hours with a stomach bug. I hate being stomach sick.
But I’m really sick and tired of winter. Now, normally, I love snow. I like that winter is cold, and I enjoy getting outside to take pictures in the snow. I usually enjoy the four seasons. But after three months of being cold, I’m tired of it. Right now I’m watching the wind whip snow around outside my window. The sun is shining, but it’s deceptive because it’s really cold out. I’ve had enough and I’m so ready for spring now. I’m ready to get outside, get my hands dirty in the garden. Even weeding sounds like fun now. Watching my tulips and daffodils pushing up out of the ground and bloom. Seeing the Johnny jump-ups’ smiling faces. Watching my flowers come back to life: lilacs, bleeding hearts, peonies, hydrangeas, roses.
So, for a little cheer, I’m reflecting on my flower gardens from last year.
