49 days till spring

If you know me, you know that I am not a fan of winter time. From the moment time changes in the fall and the first frost, I'm counting down the days till spring! 

I don't like cold, dreary days. I live for sunshine and pretty flowers in my yard, flip flop season, hands in the dirt, green grass, blue skies and wildflowers along the roads, cattle grazing in the pasture, fresh warm air, windows open... 

Winter is expensive - taxes, insurance, lots of feed and hay for the animals, heat / electricity, way too many layers of clothes, to still be freezing cold. 

So when I see the first daffodils of the season, it brings me great relief and encouragement that spring time is coming soon!!!  

I know there will still be some cold days ahead, but the end is in sight and these itsy, bitsy flowers make me happy! I can't wait for all the daffodils to be blooming in the next few weeks! 

By the way, it's 49 days till spring (and the Backwoods Marketplace)... Thank you sweet little daffodils for leading the way!

  1. I feel the same way, Janice~waiting and looking forward to spring. And, of course living in Florida we don't have the harshness that others have. But, I'll tell this - every time the heat comes on (which has been frequently lately) my mind tells me I'm hearing dollar signs.

    Thank you so much for visiting me; I know how busy you are. I lub ya. xoxo


I appreciate all of your comments and read them all! It makes my day to hear from you!
