It snowed here again today. I haven't seen my lawn in...months. The ice and snow on the roads has become an expected fixture and the single digit temperatures are almost bearable. It's a pretty pathetic state when this self proclaimed girl of summer finds these near arctic conditions normal.
I embraced the snow in December, as a white Christmas is preferable. Thankfully, January's flurries were not as prevalent. The cold was biting and there were those few days when I actually wore gloves in the house, but the fireplace and the knitting took the sting away. In the beginning of February, the snow appealed to my love of decorating. I'm just mad about all things red and white and therefore the snow provided the perfect backdrop for my Valentine decorations.
However, now that the holidays are officially over, I am done with all of this white. I may not be able to do anything about the cold, but I am in desperate need of some color and since my backyard currently looks like this....
...I had to fake it and buy my own!
Now I am normally a tulip girl. I just adore them, but who can turn down a bunch of yellow daffodils, especially when they are $1.99 at the grocery store?
Yes, I know, Nora Ephron declared (via Meg Ryan) that daisies are the friendliest flower in You've Got Mail, but my store doesn't currently have daisies and I think that the daffodils are just as friendly!
I mean they're yellow...and okay, cheap and you know what? They totally get the job done!
Ahh~ my view is much better now! If I squint, when I look out the window I can almost see spring!
I think everything looks better with flowers, don't you agree?
