It was 57 degrees here on Friday. After the winter we’ve had (and are still in – more snow tomorrow) – the idea of spring makes one a little giddy. I find myself daydreaming of open windows and green grass and being able to see the pond again. 57 degrees in February brings thoughts of living on the porch, planting vegetables, eating alfresco and reading in the sunshine – or under the shade of a big maple tree. The smell of freshly mowed grass and the sound of loons on the lake. Sadly, none of this will happen for awhile yet, but in the meantime I think I will plant a few seeds and maybe figure out how I can build myself a potting bench. Something to keep busy, with warmer weather in mind, while the snow still falls.
