The farthest southwest corner in Chautauqua County - land of lake snows, although this week we seem to be in for a break of sorts.

Well, I thought I was the only one who felt this way! I live in Mid Coast Maine, after living 13 yrs in the upper Peninsula of Michigan. I'm an Oregon tho, rain is my winter, i can handle that. Tulips are up in March,then daffodils, then the Camilla bush blooms, oh how I love Camilla's.These days and months of end of cold, cold,cold drive me nuts, depress me no end because I'm a diabetic and can't eat a whole pie at one time. (like anyone does). And I don't go out till the temp reaches 35 degrees, minimum. My dogs just wait for dad to get home to get them out.
So too have sewing projects, quilting projects and housekeeping projects, but where, oh where is the energy to do them.
So glad to know I"m not the only one, maybe there's tons of us out there.
Hang in there, I know spring's coming, the landlord told me so!

Oh can I relate!! Something inside me snapped this winter and I have decided I can no longer take it! I am actually grateful for the winter rest from gardening but the dark, cold and snow totally crush my spirit. There are people (like my husband) who love winter but NOT ME!
