February already – Spring not far away?

I have a gift for stating the obvious!  This morning I slept in until eight am, and only woke because it was LIGHT through the slats in the blind.  I can remember a February in Normandy when we ate in the garden, but I don’t think that will be happening this year – it’s still cold,  wet and windy with rare blinks of sunshine.  

Usually by now the roadside banks are starred with primroses, but their cheerful faces are still in hiding. At least we’re not flooded like swathes of England or frozen solid like huge tracts of North America, nor roasting in the Southern hemisphere.  We have much to make us thankful.

    At least we have the consolation, when you get spring, of still being in the summery part of our autumn and winter.

    I’m ready for spring. I’m ready for all of this ‘white stuff’ to melt. It’s just too cold.

    Whuuuuhhhh. I want primroses. Utah will not see primroses for a while. Say “Hi” to spring for me when you see it, Viv!

    ‘Snowdrops in flower in our garden’ – lovely sunny morning but bitter wind – now starting to think about raining. Sally

    The primroses sound lovely. I hope you can see them sooner rather than later.

    I too, am hoping this is true!

    We’re covered in snow here in Chicago–with more coming down as I type. It’s supposed to continue until tonight. On the positive side–it’s staying light out longer and longer each day!

    It is the Wet season in Malawi, torrential rain. In Australia it is summer – hot days and clear blue skies.


  14. The way to spring leads definitely in the right direction. Here in Holland it feels like autumn too.
    Have a warm weekend, Viv.


  15. It’s a glorious day here, but cold. The lounge, the warmest room in our house, is freezing. I got back into bed because it’s warmer.


  16. I love this time of year when the daylight hours seem to be lengthening – it feels like hope is in sight. It’s a lovely sunny day at the shore today with high tide so lots of waves and splashing.

    We don’t get “Spring ” here ’til late April, mid-May. But I’m determined to have some patience this year.
