Though we dodged the snow in the forecast (and for that I am so very grateful), there is a cold wind blowing and it’s below freezing again. This storm is Winter’s last effort to boss us around but I say that Winter can just go ahead and suck it. For one thing, the calendar at my house notes that Spring begins in 4 short days. For another, when the last of the snow melted over the weekend, it revealed these promising signs of happy blooms in my future. They were in this flowerbed.
