Dripping

 It seems my friends, that winter is just dripping away...
 
Your time has come, now hasten little snowflakes,
To vanish quite away;
The spring-tide hours are sounding gentle warnings
Forbidding you to stay.
~ M. E. Hathaway


 ~Be well friends~

That's ok! I know I'm ready for spring and I KNOW that people in the "great white north" are as well.

PS I started reading The Day the Falls Stood Still last night. Sheryl (ain't for city gals) said you had recommended it to her... LOVE it and I LOVE that I can actually picture the surroundings in my head! Well except for the garish/touristy parts that is :)

Andrea - I'm hoping and wishing Spring is on it's way here too. The dripping began for us, but I woke up this morning to more snow and sleet. Ugh. Back to the seed catalogs to give me hope. Glad you found the book - sorry, it does say on the counter it had previously been published with the name you found it under.
Have a great rest of the week!

And this one was perfect....

We have long thawed out, rain has moved in!
Tomorrow, however...you will envy me! Sunny and in the 70's! Now, don't be jeal :)
