Steve's sister writes from Iowa that they are expecting another 6 to 12 inches of snow today. This was the view from her window before the snow started today. This is what she looked outside and saw, and then thought, "Hey! I think we can get to the store today!"
I think it's beautiful but I know they are sick of it.
For my part, I dutifully mulched and bagged as many leaves as I could. I mowed (weeds mostly), edged, and fired up the blower. I replaced all the burned out light bulbs outside. I pruned a gardenia bush that didn't fare so well over winter.
The daffodils are showing color - they'll be blooming in a few days. My hydrangeas have tiny green leaves poking from the stems. Spring is coming!
Take heart, Sheryl! It will get to Iowa soon!
