Yesterday I slid to school in my car-sleigh. Yikes! Colorado needs moisture, so we aren't complaining. Well, I'm sort of complaining. I wore a ski sweater to school yesterday because of the Winter Wonderland outside my window and over the course of the day, going from the computer lab for reading tests and back to my room and to a meeting, I began to feel like winter weather is making me cuckoo. I felt hot and sleepy. My waistband felt like it was growing tighter. By the time I drove in the driveway in the late afternoon I was so sleepy.
We went to bed VERY early and today I am THINKING flowers and birds and flip flops.
I am thankful for my treasure trove of flower images. Note to self: Keep taking pictures of flowers.
Additional note to self: Keep walking around the neighborhood and take pictures of green stuff, too!
I fear that our area's tulips faced discouragement when the snows kept coming. Sad. I'm glad I took this photo a few springs ago!
This one, too!
I am VERY glad that I spotted these fairies in my grass and snapped this favorite photo.
I know that the yard fairies are huddled in their underground homes, bundled up in their wool sweaters, wrapped in shawls made from last year's thistle down. Yesterday I heard someone say, "I decided to trudge through the virgin snow since this is sure to be our last snow fall." HOPE!
Oh, how I'd love to be floating in a crystal clear lake or riding my pool noodle in a cool aqua-blue swimming pool. I'd like to get up in the morning, listen to birdsong, set the sun tea outside on the fence post, eat cantaloupe for breakfast, and water a pot of flowers or two with my apple-green watering teapot.
Snow snow go away and come again another day . . . like NEXT winter!
I wish you flowers.
