Despite a mid-week snow storm last week that dumped 8 new inches of snow on us . . .
and despite the fact that we were still sub-zero last night . . .
we're melting here.
Yeah. That's Garden Buddha! Visible for the first time since late December.
And check THIS out. . .
My mailbox! Totally accessible and nearly snow-free.
Sure, my yard is still mostly covered with snow. . .
but there is hope!
My pond is nearly visible again. . .
And. (Heart, be still!) The GREEN is beginning to show!
That's a hellebores there. (I'm so excited.)
And, of course, the MUD is beginning to show, too!
Spring is in the (still frigid) air. And we've got sunshine in the forecast.
Because . . .
my mittens are worn out. . . .
handknit socks, too.
My car is a mess, and my garage is covered with salt.
And my poor, damaged (unmanicured!) nails are in need of some humidity. (STAT.)
