I wish Henry were wrong….
Here at the farm, things are not colorful. In fact, the snow is dirty and drab, the snowdrops are hiding and the cardinals and wood ducks have left, no blue herons in sight. Squirrels and mourning doves scrounge for bird seed.
We have no sun for the cats to soak up, so they are napping in our bed.
There are certainly no blooms to pick, and so last year’s flowers must do.
The BBQ stands cold and metallic on the patio. The garden swing and table do not look inviting.
The snowplow came three times yesterday and once this morning to clear our lane.
This white scene is actually my hellebore bed. I am told that they are warm and snug beneath it all…
In the meantime, we have gathered yet more firewood for the stove and will wait it out.
There are a few indoor plants in bloom, just so that we don’t forget .
So, I’m waiting!
I left my heart in Haiti… Do visit updates here as well! http://haitidreams.wordpress.com/
