A friend of mine recently wrote in her own blog about having a case of spring fever. =) Well, today, in Wichita, the temperature is supposed to reach 70 degrees... IN JANUARY!!!!
I, however, am longing for winter, I have not worn all of my favorite sweaters, still haven't used my new snow shovel I bought for LAST YEAR, or had nearly enough hot cocoa. Oh, how I long for shovel-able snow. (I realize this is weird. I'm from Texas, snow is still a novelty.)
I'm afraid that my dear friend has nature on her side, though, as my plants seem to be in agreement. Here come the daffodils!
I also planted 50 grape hyacinth to go with the daffodils, and they are creeping up. I'm a little afraid I'll lose some to the wacky temperatures we've been having, but we'll see.
I hope I get to see what I envisioned when I planted them last fall. Meanwhile, all this warmth means just one other thing has gotten a head start this year... THE WEEDS. I refuse to pull weeds until at least March. Gosh, Mother Nature, get it together, man.
