We made it through February! Winter is still hanging around and snow to some degree is on the forecast here in northern Alabama for tomorrow. However, today is March 1, a "promise ring" from Spring, happily accepted, and shining in the sun! A cursory search of my unkempt winter yard this morning, did not reveal a single flower bud or bird's nest to photograph, but I did see a little more green than last week, and several very fat robins. I am looking forward to a lawn of green grass. While I won't being doing cartwheels, I will spread out a quilt and have a picnic with the children. I will plant some flowers and do some yardwork. I will sit on the front porch swing and think about...summer.
