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!

Don't you love it when you find the perfect quote, poem, etc. to match up with a photo!

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 :)
