|Will we ever see our green front lawn again?|
All my winter "decor" is packed away- the snowmen, the snowflakes, my kitchen "Welcome Winter" wreath - because winter is no longer welcome here! I hung my spring forsythia wreath on the front door today, even though from the street you can barely see it above the snowbanks. I know I have to be patient, spring WILL come, but we are well into April, after all. It's time for winter to be gone, gone, gone. I'm tired of white, and dirty white. I'm longing for some green! I have a few windows open today for a bit, even though the air is not that warm it feels good to get some fresh air in and winter's staleness out! Ollie is "sunbathing" in the open window right now - he's anxious for spring too!

I know I'm not alone in my feelings- others are fed up too. My blogging friend Pam who lives just 15 minutes away, posted this a few days ago. (At least she has some crocus to enjoy, and is seeing more robins than I...)
So today I'm sharing some snow photos for. the. LAST. TIME. I will not mention that four letter "S" word again- till at least next December. That's a promise! These pics were taken last week after our April Fools Day Storm. Things around here still look pretty much the same, even though the snow level is going down. Very little grass showing yet, just a narrow swath at the end of the driveway that's maybe 18" wide. So those of you who are enjoying spring and its blossoms elsewhere, please keep posting photos- it's giving me hope that it will arrive here too.
My quilt is all quilted and I'll be working on the binding this weekend. Stay tuned for photos early next week.
