It’s 60 degrees here today. The sun is shining, the snow is melting, and thoughts of Spring are crowding into my mind. I know that February still has to run its course. And March can and most likely will be blustery and cold. And yet, and yet. All this warmth and sunshine is playing games with my head, luring me out to garden centers bare of plants and hardware stores still packed full of snow shovels and sand for the driveway.
There I linger not over the snowblowers and mittens, but the seed packets and starting trays. The small portable greenhouses and adjustable hoes for tilling around established plants in the gardens. New feeders and birdbaths beckon, and then even more until I have to flee before I find myself laden down with purchases at the counter.
Instead I am heading off to lunch with our DC Metro Romance Group of authors, publishers, bloggers and readers. We postponed it already once this month due to snow. I can’t wait to hear how every one is handling this long winter. New books, new conferences, time to get caught up.
Here is the week ahead….Its almost March and I hear my gardens calling.
