But the odd thing for me is, I don't really get that anticipation thing until I actually do see the bulb peeking out from the earth. All winter I think I won't want to garden, until the crocus and the hyacinth nudge the dirt away and pop their little heads out of the ground. That's when I start to dream.

I guess I'm just not a gardener anymore. Sad .

My unofficial "sound" for spring is the mourning dove and I heard one TODAY - Yikes! I've heard them as early as end of January but not this early.

Ok with me though - I'm always ready for warm weather.

Beautiful quote and always a pleasure to see dear sweet Sunshine. LOVE the color of her coat.

Thank you Sharon!

I have never lived where the snow covered the ground and created a white blanket. It is a mystery to me that plants and animals not only survive through it, but many need it to survive at all. Isn't nature amazing!

I think I need the blanket of snow and the cold and dark so that when Spring comes, I appreciate the warmth, the blooms and the bird songs much more. Or maybe that's just justification for staying here. Smiling

What is so nice about folks that have snow is that they get a few months vacation. They can dream about what plants they are going to start or how to arrange their gardens and relax and look at seed catalogs all winter.

Like Zany. No snow more or less to speak of. Which means we still have to get out all winter and water and cover and uncover plants. No vacation time from plants when ya live in the South. Hilarious!

Have a Blessed and Happy New Years Everybody! Hurray! Group hug

I never thought about no vacation from gardening for those whose climate is nonstop growing weather. I do need the break, but I just wish it didn't last so long!
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

Happy New Year all!
A nice thought and great picture of 'anticipation'!
I like having the change of seasons to keep it interesting, I like being able to go out most days to poke around if I want, I think I would not like a total deep snow cover for a long time. I like to have some snow periods here because they do not last very long and there are places in my yard that melt quickly. I guess I just have decided to like exactly what I have lived with for 50+ years.

Great quote for the new year! It feels like spring here today--nearly 50 degrees and sunny. What a nice day to start 2014! And we'd better enjoy it, 'cause tomorrow the high is predicted at 20, and it's supposed to snow...that's northern KY for ya!
