30 Days Until Spring!
Only 30 days until Spring. We have a winter wonderland in the backyard just after the storm. The sun came out for the first time in what seemed like weeks just in time for it to set. It was a gift to see the snow twinkling on the tree branches before nightfall. James' antenna fell down and is covered with snow. "Soon" the deck will be filled with potted herbs and coleus. Almost 1,000 bulbs will bloom under the trees and we can celebrate God's bringing us to a new season.
Worcester Art Museum had a lovely Flora in Winter program which made us all feel better about the long cold new year. Isn't this a lovely display? I especially like the moss covered bench.
I remember pussy willows growing along the road where I walked to school when I was very little. Sometimes I'd pick them and bring them home.
New Englanders love to garden and we just have to touch something green, smell a colorful flower and be reminded to keep the faith-Spring is on the way. In the meantime, fine art and flowers in a warm colorful art museum is how I want to spend my time until I can get my hands into the soil again.
