Remember that old ketchup commercial?
An upside down bottle
Carole King singing “Anticipation” in the background.
But the ketchup just wouldn’t come out.
This spring feels like that ketchup.
It just can’t get started.
And so we awoke this Palm Sunday morning
To yet another snow.
After all it is still March!
But I’m just a little anxious.
The fact that I’m having the church Easter Egg hunt next weekend
And my yard hasn’t even been scalped
Is driving me just a bit!
So today I did a little “snow gardening”
Yes, it was cold.
But after putting on tights, pants, sock liners, socks, boots, wool sweater, coat, glove liners, gloves & ear muffs
Combined with sunshine and a wind block.
It was pretty toasty out.
Smiling violas kept me company
Just waiting for companion tulips to appear
The leaves were wet with snow
But they rack up just like dry ones.
And there is life beneath.
The hope of spring
Of garden days to come.
Of blooms to breath in
Sunshine’s on it’s way.
Enjoy the week.

PS it was Carly Simon !
Uh – oh…my apologies to Carly Simon!
Okay, you win. I thought I was an obsessive gardener but I’ve never gone out to rake with snow still on the ground. 🙂
Thanks Judy, but I’m not sure this is a contest I want to win.
It was a first for me – and hopefully a last!
Loved that analogy….Not sure why, but I am as eager as our daffodils…they don’t mind a little snow or cold, I remain hopeful for April showers! Thanks for your blog waking us up for spring that is sure to come.
