Spring is just around the corner..... ?

Peeking out the window it is difficult to remember that just two days ago I was outside picking up the many, many twigs and branches, admiring the ground where grass used to be, knowing that in just another day the remaining pile of snow from plowing the drive would soon be gone... and then the Michigan weather struck again.  I hope the ice doesn't kill the buds!  Hubby kept telling me not to get too excited, there would be more snow coming out way.  (One would think after three years I would be getting the hang of this weather!)   I just didn't want to hear it.  Nor did I want to tell him, "dear, you were right!"   But I did!   And it really didn't hurt too terribly bad. Tehehe

At least the inside is looking like springtime.  Just tucked the winter snowman dishes away yesterday and brought out the sunflowers.  So I'll just keep my "rose colored" glasses on for a few more weeks until spring really DOES arrive!

Happy Wednesday everyone!!

Thanks for coming by! I feel your pain, I want spring and we haven't even gotten buds yet! Our yard is still full of snow. I told hubby we might as well move to the UP because we seem to be getting just as much snow!
Happy Weekend,

Lovely photo! Yes, I totally understand. We are buried in snow in Vermont and have yet to see many signs of spring. I hope you don't lose any plants and I'm with you, I hope spring will arrive soon.
