(store bought) daffodils by lamp-light
...it is, yet again, a dark, dreary, windy, rainy day here and my longing for Spring is out of control.
I'm tired of taking photos by lamp-light. I'm tired of looking at my yard and garden and wondering how will I ever get this mess cleaned up. I'm tired of looking at all the pretty bedding plants at the nursery knowing what would happen if I brought some of them home with me. I'm tired of "planning" my gardens and watching my bulbs floating in their beds. I'm tired, just plain tired. (and yet there is a part of me that thinks...shut up, I have nothing to complain about with all the misery in the world. But I realize I cannot do anything but pray for those lost souls and so I do and then I must move forward with my life, hard as it may be to do so. Sometimes being so tender-hearted is so very difficult, I really struggle with trying to understand.)
I wonder, where is the sun? Where are the birds? Where are all the signs that Spring will eventually make an appearance? Where, why, oh my!
I'm done with all the whining and waiting. This week we are going to court Spring like never before. I have
