Getting it. ...

Are you? You know... that "if things don't start turning green pretty soon and the weather isn't consistent enough to go outside in the afternoon for a longer period than 20 minutes and there is zero percent chance of snow for the next 25 days, then I might go crazy" feeling. I have it. Severely. Though I can't complain too badly. It's been warm here. Unseasonably so. Today we spent a while at the botanical gardens. It's one of my favorite places to go in the winter...just to scratch that winter fever itch for just a second. It smells like jasmine there right now.

These photos are so peaceful! I love the lemon and the cabbage. I have winter fever too! Come on Spring, get here quick!

Yes I have it too! Being cooped up inside for the last 2 weeks recovering from having the baby & dealing with a 2 year olds cold/ear infection is only making it worse. I can't wait for spring! Wishing we had some sort of happy springy place to visit...but not much here in the boonies. Love the cabbage & the last dandelion looking flower. Very Springish.

These are beautiful Stacey. So warm! I love the lemon photo.

Last night we had a boom of thunder that woke me up. The temp went up to 8 degrees. Today I watched it go down dramatically as I was driving around running errands. It's down to about minus 15 now, and we're expecting more snow next week! Sorry for rambling, but I guess I needed to vent. Yes, I am done with this weather. :)

I just love that first image. And yes, I totally have that feeling. I'm getting SO antsy for spring! I want to get my camera and take pictures of flowers, and waterfalls and whatever else I can find that's covered with snow right now!

Sigh... I've been "getting it" since November.. I hate the cold.
The images are positively lovely.
I love jasmine... my most favorite flower! They used to grow outside my window when I was a child and I'd pluck a blossom and bring it inside so my whole room would smell yummy!
The lemon image is one of my favorites too!
