Happy Spring?

I promised myself when I heard the sleet hitting the windows last night that I would not gripe about the weather. This winter has been a doozy and frankly, I’m over it. I was determined to ignore the sleet and go to sleep thinking happy thoughts about fruity umbrella drinks and tropical temperatures.

Those warm fuzzy feelings lasted until I saw that last night’s sleet had turned into today’s snow. That’s right. I said snow. In mid-April. Any residual tropical thoughts evaporated when I saw my hyacinths. My beautiful and fragrant hyacinths that had just come into full bloom Sunday.

I am now headed back into the house to kick off my snow boots and sit in lotus position, trying to recapture some of my warm tropical thoughts while mentally giving Mother Nature the finger.
