Here comes the sun

Even though the ground is still covered in an icy pack of snow and our little hibernating groundhog couldn’t get out of his hole if he wanted to, let alone see his shadow, change is on the way. I can’t feel it in the air yet because it’s 9 degrees F outside this morning, but it’s coming sure enough. The seasons are starting to turn. Why do I think so? Because it was so light this morning. Much lighter. At night too, the daylight seems extensive and I have to look at the clock to see what time it is and I am amazed it’s as late as it is. 

In short, more light = spring. At least that’s my take on it.

Until then I have my other amaryllis to brighten my day. C’mon sun!

The amaryllis is beautiful.

It’s supposed to get to 50 F. here today. Almost hot!

yes ma’am I am getting my gold “puppy” out for a walk right now.
