Take Off Old Man Winter!

Hey, Old Man Winter, I'm talking to you - take off dude! I am tired of brown grass, bare branches and cold winds! I want my garden back! I want my green grass back! I want to hear the happy chirping of little birds in the early morning and feel the warm sun as it rises over the house while I sip coffee on the back porch again!

I am tired of staring at this every day.

Look what you have done to my beautiful roses! How could you?

Step aside and let Spring make her way down the aisle so my roses can bloom again!

Your first breath of frost back in late October was admittedly beautiful, and honestly I was growing tired of watering, fertilizing and weeding the gardens, but I have put up with four months of this weather, and I'm ready to dig again!

I'm ready to see blooms of life again!

I am getting antsy. This is a dangerous time for me. A new plant catalogue arrives in the mail daily, and my desire to garden is so strong that I just might start making orders. No! Someone restrain me! I don't have the willpower to fight it! Agh!!!
