Okay, I love winter. I love snow and snow days. I love to watch my boys throw snowballs at each other and race down the hill on their sleds. I love the feel of crisp, cold air. I love the smell of smoke from the chimney. I love to wear sweaters. I love hot chocolate and I love the holidays that come with winter.
Our desert Southwest climate needs all the moisture it can get, but it seems like we have had a lot more snow than usual this year. And, I will admit, I am really over winter! It was only 14 degrees when I got up this morning. . . .Brrrrrr! Here is our most recent 10 inch snowfall. Yes, that lump at the bottom is a car.
Now that the calendar has turned to March, I see spring and summer on the horizon. I am looking forward to playing in the dirt and enjoying my yard. I miss my beautiful gazing ball. It has been buried in the snow too.
This is the "Walker's Low Catmint" I planted last summer. It was so pretty and it did really well in our dry, clay soil. I am looking forward to seeing it again, along with all of the other new perennials I planted last year.
I am really looking forward to opening the windows in the house, hanging our cloths out on the line, longer days, feeling warm sun on my skin, hearing the birds sing and watching the hummingbirds fight over the feeders.
Can you tell I have Spring Fever?? What are you looking forward to this spring?
