The Attack of the Dreaded Farch, redux
It's so nice to realize that we're not alone in our winter malaise, isn't it? Thanks to all of you who have offered kind wishes on my crappy knee, and to those who are enduring the plague of this winter, too. It would seem, from reading blogs the past day or so, that we here in NS are trailing at least a day behind our fellow northern gardening bloggers, as we had a nice (but cold) day yesterday and a nice (and very mild day today)...and are currently waiting to be clobbered by an ice storm, which some of you have had.
We don't know whether to laugh or cry, do we? Despite my harrumphing, my inclination is to find humour in among the rantings. I was reduced to giggles yesterday when I saw this sign in Kentville, so I pulled over, grabbed my camera, and went back to capture it. I think it sums up winterweariness really, really well, don't you?
Batten down the hatches, friends...despite our best wishes, we ain't quite out of the weatherwoods yet. But at least we can draw on delightful plants such as this to cheer our souls. And the clocks go ahead in a few days too. We'll get there from here.
