It’s hard to believe but 6 months ago, we were just coming out of a massive ice storm. I was trying to pack my car without falling on my face so I could head to my parents for Christmas!

Yesterday I had clothes hanging on my clothesline to dry. Six months ago, the lilac tree was hanging on it instead.

My Solomon Seal was entombed in ice…and now its delicate bells serenade the warm temperature.

Even the Tim Horton’s patio was empty that day…

A lot can happen in 6 months! The grass is green and the flowers are blooming. Robins chuckle heartily and everyone is dressed in short sleeves…no winter boots in sight. But Maya Angelou wrote: “Nature has no mercy at all. Nature says, “I’m going to snow. If you have on a bikini and no snowshoes, that’s tough. I am going to snow anyway”. If given a choice, I almost think I’d take the snow over the bikini…I’m pretty certain the rest of the world would prefer I make that choice too! 🙂

Merry Christmas!
