"Ugh" Me...(shuddering in sympathy.)
"I think I'd be insane right about now if we were still living in Ohio." Says SM
"It's so tough this time of year." I said agreeing. "Remember how we were so starved for color? Months after months of nothing but gray and brown and white."
13 years ago this month, SM and I decided to make the jump to live in North Carolina.
SM and I remembered how we stood in amazement under a bright blue North Carolina sky in March of 1998. We marveled over the fact that pansies were growing and red buds and pears were popping. We didn't even need a heavy coat.
Heaven on Earth!
This weekend we are having what SM calls "Ohio weather". Gray and rainy. But I don't mind. We need the rain.
It's a slow soaking rain that will make my life easier when I "double-dig" later this week.
For now, though...I thought we could ALL use a spot of color in our lives to remind us that Spring is just around the corner.
I have a southern friend who call forsythia, "Yellow-bells."
