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.March19-2013Cats

There are certainly no blooms to pick, and so last year’s flowers must do.March19-2013DriedFlowers

The BBQ stands cold and metallic on the patio. The garden swing and table do not look inviting.March19-2013BBQ March19-2013Swing March19-2013Table

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…March19-2013Hellebores

In the meantime, we have gathered yet more firewood for the stove and will wait it out. March19-2013Wood

There are a few indoor plants in bloom, just so that we don’t forget .March19-2013Blooms2 March19-2013Blooms1

So, I’m waiting!
