Where is the Sun?

We have had no real sun for the past couple of days. Grey days and snowing. Not much snow to write home about but, enough to create miserable days.

Each morning when I get up I always check the weather forecast for the day and the coming week. Our week ahead doesn't hold much promise for better weather. Unless you consider the temperatures. They will be above freezing starting tomorrow and going on for the next couple of days. But, there is only ONE day we are going to get to see the sun. The other days will be cloudy with either rain (!) or, snow in the forecast.

Sigh.... is winter never going to end this year? It seems as though it has hung on long enough to me. Or, do I just have a bad case of cabin fever this year? Or, is it that I am longing to get my fingers dirty and I can't? I am yearning for Spring and it seems so far away... sigh.

Here's a picture from one of my lilac bushes this past year. It's up as my desktop background so I can see it all the time. It's a sure sign of spring when I see the lilacs in bloom. Well late spring anyway. Sigh.

OK, it is my wallpaper too, or as they call it on my mac “Desktop Picture”. I grew up with a lilac bush just outside the bedroom window in the days of no A/C so the aroma drifted thru the open portal and touched everything with its pure scent. Lilacs--here we have Wisteria. No where near the same lovely fragrance.

This bush is huge! We have three large bushes. They are all too far away to have their lovely scent wafting in the windows like yours did. I only wish. So instead as they are blooming I bring in a branch or two and it fills the house with it's lovely perfume.

Little old me...
