No, it doesn't look like this here yet. I wish.
This was taken May 21, 2012.
We have a long way to go.
I know many of you are experiencing that beauty right now. Sigh....
It is still brown with a few sprigs of green here and there.
Our spring is about 2 weeks behind last year but probably right on schedule in a normal year. Last year was exceptional here as it was for most of North America. This year, winter is holding on so tightly it hurts. But, spring weather is coming. I just know it.
I decided to change my header photo to show what our spring will look like in a few weeks. The old header photo was a bit too drab and dreary for me and I was longing to see something green and some flowers. All the photos in my header were taken last May.
I did see some of those coltsfoot flowers growing along the side of the road yesterday. They look like dandelions and people often mistaken them for the bright yellow blooms.
When in Portland, Maine last weekend we saw this....
lots of magnolia trees in bloom, green grass, crocuses and daffodils, and forsythia in bloom.
Portland is 5 hours from here and I'm guessing we might see these things here in 5 days. Do you suppose?
It was cool, foggy, and rainy here the past two days. So damp, even in the house. I've been drinking lots of hot tea
to warm me up.
Speaking of tea.
We found some really great prices on boxed teas at The Christmas Tree Shoppe. $2.49 a box which is over a dollar cheaper than it is here. We bought 8 boxes. :-)
So, hot tea it is for now. The cold tea will have to wait a while.
Which do you prefer? Hot or cold tea? Does it depend on the season? Just wondering.
Oh, and it's sunny this morning and it's going to feel like spring for the next 4 or 5 days! Yippee!!
Have a wonderful weekend!
