I am in a cycle of griping about the weather and have begged for a week now to go back down where it’s warm and sunny.  I can assure you that next year we will not return until mid-April.  We’ve had to re-winterize the trailer (pull batteries and add anti-freeze) and that just exacerbated my grouchiness.

In an effort to lighten up, I bought two budding hyacinths and their sweet aroma wafting through the house has certainly helped.

 

My African violets are blooming again,

 

and my orchid looks happy…

I bought a new bonsai at Epcot and it’s feeling quite at home.

I Know that there is a happy ending to all of this, and that it’s sooner than later that I’ll be outside in the garden…  I could be cleaning the house, I suppose, but I’m going to follow the guidance of my Guru Margo: do some reading and catch up on my Goodreads goals; watch some Netflix (learning to speak in a scots accent by Shetland); and just Relax…

Peace
