Winter doldrums


Nothing like a bouquet of tulips to brighten one's day.


"If I were to name the three most precious resources of life, I should say books, friends and nature; and the greatest of these, at least the most constant and always at hand, is nature."

~ John Burroughs

The daffodils are starting to pop up in our yard, and the day lilies are right behind them... it's only January, but I'll take it! They can grow as fast as they want to!
