On My Mind~~Waiting for Spring Edition

Who isn't waiting for spring (among us North Americans, that is!)? I bought these flowers a week ago as a winter pick-me-up. February is the hardest month for me because, though I enjoy many aspects of winter, by this time I'm tired of it and longing for flowers, green grass, and warmer temperatures, especially after the particularly frigid and snowy winter we are having. Next week promises to deliver a few days in the 50's. Now that is surely a sign that winter is loosening its grip! Hurray!

Thanks to Rhonda at the delightful Down to Earth blog for hosting this Friday feature! (Hey, it's Friday in Australia!)


  1. There is nothing like flowers to brighten a dreary day! I agree that Spring is just around the corner.

  2. Hello I like your post. I too am dreaming of spring this cold Canadian winter is taking a toll. I can't wait to see the flowers start to sprout.

  3. Hi woman of the house, I'm Rhonda, not Brenda. ;- )

    I feel the same, in reverse. I want winter to start. I'm sick of warm weather, sunny skies, cold drinks and salads.

  4. I heard that about the weather. Still snowy here and in the single digits last night. brrrrrrrrrr.

  5. Gasp! Rhonda, I'm so sorry! I do know your name, and I have no idea why Brenda came out the end of my fingers! I've edited my post to include your proper name. :-)

    Thanks for visiting, everyone! It's fun to see people from all over!
