It's been a wretched winter throughout much of the US this year. New England has been no exception. It seems that every winter I get a bit of seasonal affective disorder. This year was a bit worse. With my driveway a lost cause and everything becoming an effort as a result of the snow, I got a bit down. Hence, the lack of writing on the blog.
The past few days we've had a warm up. A sneak peak to Spring. Yesterday reached 55 and today is supposed to get to 60. It's wonderful. The snow isn't melting fast enough, but it is melting. There are peaks of mud under trees and bushes, while the vast majority of the ground remains covered. Even so, the weather has improved my mood.
In a fit of optimism and downright defiance, I planted my first seeds.
Now I need to go spend some time catching up on everybody's blogs. The gardening season has begun!
