See what I did there?? Wintery mix? Get it??
Well, we’ve made it to March. Spring is just around the corner. I mean, it’s still 5 degrees out, but officially we have less than 20 days left of winter and I honestly can not wait for warmer weather. I mean…Northern lights, Iceland, dog sledding…they’re all on the to-do list. But with none of those being in my immediate future, the next best thing would be a few 60 degree days. Please and thank you.
So…where do the mixed feelings come in? New England can be so dang quaint in the winter.
The first photo is a pretty typical scene around these parts. Old tobacco sheds are found all over the top half of the state, and when I stumbled (aka, took an adventure-drive) on the scene, it immediately felt like home.
The second photo is from what I like to remember as Narnia-Day. It was our first snow fall of the year, and it was one of those soft, gentle falls that feels like you’re walking through a Walt Whitman poem. Or the Wardrobe. If I were in a movie (other than a CS Lewis flick), I would look up at the falling snow, with my hands in the air while the camera spun around me, focusing on the snowflakes landing in my eyelashes. Yeah, it was that kind of day.
So, until we start to see a few warmer days, which…did I mention…I’m looking forward to?…then I will try to remember to appreciate the beauty (and the hot cocoa) of the hardest season of the year. Now, move over Starks! Spring is coming.
