The groundhog did or did not see his/her shadow, which means we only have about two more months of winter left. Winter usual ends about the end of March or the beginning of April, with the occasional blast toward the end of April.
So, I was delighted to see this in my dining room.
Looks positively tropical. I think I should have been drinking something with an umbrella in it.
The azalea is showing us that winter means nothing to it.
The amaryllis bulbs have started to sprout. They spent last summer on the patio, and have just decided to wake up after a nap in the sun room for a few months.
Meanwhile, a new scarf will make my winter look better.
This is the Pembroke Scarf, and it is knit in hand dyed yarn I bought at a yarn festival, last fall. Lots of great spring colours, there. I just need to weave the ends in.
