The World Goes Beige

This time of year, around here, nature limits herself.   Dried grasses, dried turned fields, leafless twigs, beige. Rain and half-heated snow and fog dull the senses.  Cold air, cold soil, not a whiff of warming soil to be found.  Mother Nature gives us this neutral waiting time of year to ready us for the glory of spring. I realized that is the reason for my funk,  waiting for spring.

Last year, this season, I got out my kites.

and started this journal.  Go fly a kite! Happy words!

Hope Spring comes quick for you.  We get a taste of it every once in a while here already and it does change how you approach life a little bit.  Loved the kite entry...

Well at least the dogs had a good day this time last year - at the expence of mice and kites! What I always find exciting now is the sight of new buds everywhere - bursting with the promise of warmth and growth to come!
