Snow Days

Snowed In

A couple of weeks ago the grass was green and the daffodils were just starting to come up. I could smell spring in the air and I just couldn't wait.

Snow Growing

Then we had two big snow storms.

I've decided to look at it as a reprieve, sort of like hitting the snooze button on the alarm so I can spend just a few more minutes dreaming. I've decided to be grateful for these last, quiet, introspective days of winter; for time to spend in the studio instead of the garden; for time to spend reading instead of weeding; for time to spend planning instead of planting.

Frozen In Time

Dear Spring, don't hurry.

  1. One of the reasons I love snow - apart from all the obvious prettiness and quietness! - is because it's a wonderful excuse to stay at home and get on with creative things! But I still love to be able to go out into the garden and inspect the progress of the daffodils and the little bits of green showing on the bushes. Yesterday was a day of that sort here and I noticed a bud on one of my roses but today we are back in cold, grey winter.

    1. Hi Judy. I never really appreciated winter until I had a garden, now I look forward to it. But just the thought of Daffodils and roses, makes me a little impatient for spring again. :)

  2. Hi Victoria!! I saw your posting on the Possibilitarian Tribe and wanted to introduce myself -- I'm Deb. I'm starting to compile a contact list of our tribe and wanted to go through and say hello to everyone. If you'd like a copy of the list, you can email me at and my blog is Love, love the gorgeous background on your blog -- is it your own work? Sending loves!

    1. Hi Deb, thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and say hello. I will definitely be in touch. Yes the background is my work, thanks! :)
