Funny thing happened the
other day while I was
cleaning up some cupboards,
and came across a photo of
snowdrops that I had taken
played around with some
textures, and text added
“If winter tarries too long
make your own spring.”
Oh, that’s nice I thought, so I
decided to try and find out
where that quote came from.
But when I Goggled it, my
blog post that I had written last year when we first moved here came up.
Seems like winter was really hanging on then also, and apparently I was finding it hard to deal with it then also, nothings really changed has it?
That’s one of the things I love about blogging, if I remember to reference the weather…or what is happening, it’s interesting to go back and see how things were.
I don’t know who originally wrote that quote, but I do like it, to me it means take charge, make some changes, don’t let life dictate what’s going to happen..and for goodness sake get outside, no matter the weather.
Bring on your spring
Winter is trying to stay, it’s there in the big patches under the trees, hiding on the shady parts of the roof and lingering in the piles of snow.
It’s funny to be out raking the front yard between the patches of snow that cover the garden beds…but we all, and that includes the Boo, have spring fever. Any outdoor air is very welcome.
So I am making my own spring, by getting some pretty little blue potted muscari that will be moved to the garden when they finish up. It was the last pot in a sea of daffies so it looks like someone else has the same idea and got to them before I could.
I choose potted bulbs to bring on my spring this week, what have you been doing to bring on spring?
