We are all craving sunshine and the smell of fresh Spring air.
January and February are long months to endure and any day that gives us warm sun and a calm breeze is welcomed. Sadly, this will be a week of frigid cold temperatures and bitter winds but we will have sun.
So, what can make it all seem better on these frosty, cold days?
I suppose a nap in a favorite box would be ok. Annie certainly thinks so.
Or cuddlin' up with a friend and dreaming of summer days on the deck would do nicely.
How about a cup of tea, a new book and a treat?
I think that will have to do.
The sun poured through my dining-room windows today and bathed my African Violets.
I have one beautiful one, one waiting to flower and one pathetic little heap sitting in the center of the table.
Someone else has discovered the sun-puddle and wants to share with the violets.
She has an uncanny ability to appear out of nowhere.
She likes the hairy leaves and thinks a cat hair or two would just improve their look.
I have just discovered I love violets.
I'm going to pamper these just like I pamper the cats.
And just as the cats comfort me with their melodic purr
So shall these plants with their beautiful blooms.
Audrey just left. She can't take all the gush.
This photo makes me long for summer...

Stay warm my Canadian friends
Spring is only 57 days away.
