I live in Texas... our winter blues are not brought on by feet of frigid snow. (not that I would mind a little snow)
Our blues are not brought on my slick ice. Or even slushy slush.
My winter blues are brought on by the brownness.
The blahiness. (dontcha just love making up new words?)
There are crunchy non fall-colored leaves all over.
There is mud from the rains.
It's just ugly.
It's not cold cold. It does frost some nights. And it's still wet humid yucky. BLAH.
At least snow feels clean.
At least snow looks clean. (cept for the snow near Akron Ohio... our snow there was gray... yuck!)
Icicles hanging all over look majestic and jewel-like.
But the mud here is not majestic. It is not pretty.
It does not look clean. it is Blah!
Today I filled 4 planters with rich dirt and compost.
One of the planters is now planted with various chives.
One is full of herbs
One is full of lettuce.
And one is full of tomatoes!! (there is nothing in the world better than a home grown tomato!!)
Ooooh I can't wait!!!
Soon I'll have homegrown veggies.. even tho it is brown and chilly and blah outside.
