A 20-something degree or lower chill is what made the frost’s arms reach, curl, tuck across the leaf’s body, mostly in the dark of the previous night as if they were two lovers finally in a long awaited embrace. It is proven in the shadows of daylight that they can still shine.


The Wonders of the Melting Winter

March came in that winter like the meekest and mildest of lambs, bringing days that were crisp and golden and tingling, each followed by a frosty pink twilight which gradually lost itself in an elfland of moonshine.” ~L.M. Montgomery

Winter: It is in the final throes, the cusp when the days gradually begin to finally grow warm and tingly with Spring at long last. We are quite lucky that it has made a light meal of us here on San Juan Island, mostly only baring it’s claws via the season’s chilly air. Let us hope that it has taken it’s final bow of sugaring our lands white to let Spring finally roam amongst us! 

Are any of you ready for Spring? Or do you wish that Winter would last a little bit longer? Let me know in the comment section!
