Winter...Ba Humbug!

Not only have I decided to blog today, but I have even updated my design.  Hey, I'm feeling a little festive.

Is anyone tired of winter beside just me?  Winter has hit everyone hard this year in all four corners of the USA.  After 2 snow storms, ok, the one on Christmas day was picture perfect so maybe I should just discount that one, but the snow storm of January 10th was more than any Southerner could handle.

I know, my family and friends on the East Coast have had what? 50+ inches of snow so far?  More on the way and more predicted for Atlanta this coming week.

So with all that said...here's a photo we can all relish in...
Lovely blooming pear trees....
 A tiny bit of phlox...
And my favorite of all....hosta...I can almost smell the rich soil...

If you are counting the days to Spring, tell me what you are most excited about Spring's arrival...

Spring brings me outdoors and onto my deck to garden. I am so looking forward to playing in the dirt again. Oh and I've got a Grandbaby due also!

I would kill for a little hay fever right about now! And it is awfully cute in here;) And, yes, I am enjoying my martini as we visit!

The smell of fresh turned earth on the farm and watching the alfalfa wake up and send tiny green shoots upwards that will turn the fields from brown to various shades of green as the fields come alive from their winters sleep!

I saw a daffodil blooming in Oregon over the weekend! It made me very happy! Good to see you back!
