Having grown up in snowy upstate New York, I don't know if I'll ever get used to spring coming in February.

We're not talking a few random flowers. My yard is filled with daffodils. The Bradford Pear is just days away from being covered in delicious white blossoms.

We never even had a sticking snow this year. I think I'm OK with that, just for a year. But I'm not sure I am nearly ready to begin yard work all over again. The weeds are already flourishing in the rock garden, and I never even had time (or cold enough weather) to do a winter pruning.

The south is a crazy place to live, but I wouldn't trade it for anything.


  1. We could still have a decent snow, although I do admit it is unlikely.

  2. I know what you mean. Its been crazy warm here in Missouri.

  3. We've had crazy spring like weather here in California, but today it's raining/snowing.

  4. Having been born in the South, I've lived here all my life. This has been my kind of winter---warm! What could be better than everything blooming in February!

  5. Upstate NY is finally getting its first real snowstorm of the winter, although the jury's still out on whether the timing will be right for a snow day tomorrow :)

  6. How beautiful! I can't wait to have things start to bloom around here! :)
