We live and learn

How is it March already?

It's nearly time for spring fever for school children and mommies everywhere.

My daffodils are still shivering and the maples aren't yet in bud. I haven't yet started a seedling although I plan to do so this week. Winter storms still pound on the skylights and most passing cars still wear snow tires.

I suggested a hike to my sweet children the other day. A nice, long nature hike to collect mosses and cones. "That sounds miserable," replied one child who then entered a form of witness protection. She was right but it still stung. I'm ready, for goodness sake, for spring. So why won't the weather cooperate?
