I took a picture of our friend's old barn this afternoon. It was sort of pretty, sitting there in a yard full of snow. Yes, snow. Still snow. Always and evermore snow, it would seem. Unlike in some places:
Vancouver, BC from whence my mother sent me a picture of the gardenia blooming in her garden
Christchurch, NZ where the Sagittarian is enjoying limes from her hot house
Nashville, TN where if the weather isn't always hot, the food certainly is
Not to mention certain other people I know of who have been lolling about on a south seas isle.
Well, here on the winterbit eastern Canadian coast, I do what I can to warm things up, adding a bit of colour however I might to a chilly clime bereft of cheery hues.
