Winter Found

Just a few days ago, I wrote about the Spring chives found growing in my backyard.  As of today, those days are over.  It’s 9 degrees this morning with a wind chill just below zero.  So Winter has found us, and seemingly with a vengeance.  Having taken a longer holiday than usual, the cold is back and means business.  Gloves and hats have been found; scarves aren’t just pretty accessories, they are the warmth between me and a frigid neck.  

I was glad to have sweater weather and had even looked forward to it.  But just one day in to this patch of significant cold finds me looking at my garden catalogs and dreaming of Spring.
