Missing Green

During these short cold days of January I find myself longing for the green days of June.  I really don't mind the cold but miss the view of green hovering heavily on trees outside my door.   The cool/cold air is a temporary haven for the body but not for the soul.   For many southerners it is a necessity to endure summer's heat to enjoy the fruits of our address.

  1. Thanks for all the lovely greeen! Love the Mary McDonald room, but it is hard to pick a favorite. All your lovely flowers, please send gardening tips. I'm a newbie with all the flowers and such, but am managing to keep a few house plants alive and I spotted a few hyacinth and daffodils coming up yesterday. I do not like the cool/cold. I hope for a warm early Spring. And lots of flowers.

    1. Your welcome Ms Princess! I wish I could help you with your gardening tips but I know so little. I was fortunate to marry a man with a green thumb for the most part. Living in the south, I do like to pick up tips from Southern Living on flowers/shrubs and trees and "remind" the mister on tips that I run across.
