Charles Dickens, Garden, Poppies, Rose of Sharon, Sky, Snowdrops, Spring, Winter
It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. ~ Charles Dickens
It was one of those days, except it wasn’t. It was February 1 and unseasonably warm for these parts. The sky looked like winter and the air felt like spring at 60 degrees in the woods.
The Rose of Sharon believes that it is still winter.
However, the Poppies and the Snowdrops have other ideas as to how soon they will blossom.
Hope springs eternal.
I love two first photos. We have yet today snow about 20 centimeters / 0.6 feet.
Thank you for your comment. This is the first year that I can remember when we did not get (virtually) any snow. It snowed here about 5 inches on October 29, which is very rare and it melted the next day. Then two or three dustings of snow throughout the winter, less than one inch. And that was all. But they make snow at the ski resort nearby, so the family was happy to be able to ski and snowboard. Merci and enjoy your snow!
