the postman delivered the
March-April Victoria magazine to my door.
It is just blooming with all kinds of
You know, it just isn't fair.
Our garden is very much still
in the "dead" stage of winter.
The stage where I always imagine
that it will never shine again
and even though it still does eventually,
it is hard to wrap my mind around it right now.
I kid you not!
One minute the weak sunshine
is trying to break through the lace curtains
and my heart is a-flutter
and in the next second
it goes dark again.
It just simply is not fair.
I really don't feel right about
taking down winter just yet.
It seems that I just put it up,
but when you are being torn
by what you see around you,
it feels like I am back between
what looks like Christmas
and it isn't even Thanksgiving yet.
I really don't want to be left
not having anything to put out
when the real spring actually gets here.
So just like having
one piece of candy to appease you
instead of the whole bag,
I am rummaging through the cupboards and bins
to find just a little bit of color and romance
that will bring out what the heart wants
until it can get what it needs.
I can not forget that this is February,
the month of the valentine.
So, while trying to bring a little something
bright and beautiful to the Cottage,
I will add in a few touches of something
that might pull on your heartstrings.
I hope you liked that I brought a little
brightness to the picture
and I think I have satisfied myself
without giving too much of spring away.
I know that there will still be much to enjoy
and old Punxsutawney Phil
says it will be here sooner than later.
Happy Valentines to you.
