I am so over winter. These photos were taken today out my front and back doors. It's the middle of May, not January. I am so sick of snow. I want my sunshine and my heat. I want flowers and birds and bunnies. I'm a hot weather kind of gal. On Monday I was wearing shorts; today I'm out trying to save my trees from losing limbs due to the wet, heavy snow. All I got for my efforts was big clumps of snow plopping down on my head. I have been babying a rose bush in the back yard for almost three years now. Last year it actually had buds before a tremendous hail storm stripped it of both its buds and leaves. I had a stick bush for most of the summer. Yesterday it actually had two blooms on it before all this heavy snow was dumped on it. I know we need the moisture but rain works too. Oh well, I think I'll go stitch something.
