You can't always get what you want....
but if you try sometime, you just might find...
you get what you need.
-- The Rolling Stones
Yesterday was the last day of Winter here, and it was gorgeous and Springlike. 72 degrees, sunny, buds everywhere and blooms beginning.
Here are maple buds on my favorite tree. The green tree you see in the distance is a live oak; they keep their leaves all winter and shed and regrow in the spring.
Today, a different picture entirely. Cold, rain mixed with snow, chances of freezes the next two nights. I was feeling a little grumbly, and then my friend MidlifeRookie pointed out on Facebook that this is a Winter Reprise...a chance for snuggling in, chili, hot chocolate. It won't last long, and all too soon it will be HOT HOT HOT.
Thanks for that! I think a Winter Reprise might be just what I needed this weekend. Whether I wanted it or not.
