Six Weeks

We’ve been in a cycle of winter storms for the last few days. It’s expected to continue into Monday. Here in the hills of Worcester County, we’ve had snow, rain, fog, sleet, an hour or two of sun, howling winds and more snow. Coastal New England, on the other hand, has been hit much more severely with hurricane force winds, downed trees, damaged buildings and widespread power outages.

Out of curiosity (and driven by more than a touch of cabin fever) I looked back through my spring photographs. Using the past several years as a guide, we’ve got about six more weeks before anything as lovely as these crocuses push up through newly thawed ground and last year’s autumn leaves, to delight and dazzle.

Six weeks.
I can handle that.

Hi DMM -
We actually have red flannel sheets on the bed right now - very cozy!
As for the snow angel picture, I'm afraid the crunchy, crusty, iciness prevents creating any new snow angels. All I can offer is this one.
