Mood: not sure
Topic: Winter's Very End
OK... I hear reports of springtime in the Rockies. So where is it here in the East?
So far we've had rain, gray days, snow, gray days, more rain, cold temperatures, rain and gray days... the sun is an infrequent visitor.
It's two days before the Equinox, and I've seen no flowers coming up, nor buds on the trees, and only occasional robins.
Winter insists on hanging on and not letting go. I'm trying to be patient, though. I know that before long everyone will be complaining about the heat, and all the mowing they have to do.
We just purchased a riding lawn mower, so we'll be ready for those days ahead. A green lawn is something new to us, and the possibility of a garden, instead of grow boxes, is something we're looking forward to now that we no longer reside in the drought-ridden West.
But, alas, I do miss Springtime in the Rockies, with the endless blue skies, the illusion of green lawn as the cheatgrass comes up... and the arrival of bluebirds scouting out places to take up residence.
In due time spring will be here. I'm learning to be patient. At least with the colder weather, I can walk in the woods without worrying about seeing a snake. There's always a bright side.
