In fact, sometimes in winter, we long for warmer temperatures. I'm not certain that we long for 100 degrees, but . . .
That is one good thing, I guess, about living in a four season clime -- we get summer which is hot and humid and dry and we get winter which is cold and sometimes snowy and icy and then we get Spring and Fall -- the perfect seasons!
We're tired of summer and yearn for fall. Since we were gone for Spring, it seems to me as if we skipped Spring and went from Winter to Summer! And Summer at it's hottest!!!
This post, from February 2010, reminds me that the 100 plus degree temperatures won't last forever and just looking at these pictures makes me feel a bit cooler!
I'm joining Chari at Happy To Design for Sunday Favorites.
Enjoy the snow with an icy glass of tea -- you'll be cooler just looking at the garden full of "white stuff"!
We, on the prairie, feel fortunate that Monday's snow was measured by a few inches and not feet like our neighbors to the East. It was a wet snow and so it turned Linderhof into a winter wonderland for not only was snow on the ground but it turned the trees into white wonders.
The birds were busy at the feeders -- there are two male cardinals in the picture -- can you spot them? There are three more males that come visit plus their ladies often accompany them.
A summer table with a snow "tablecloth" and snow "chair pads". The branches hang low with the weight of the snow.
Although Oliver's breed was bred to herd cattle. And most cattle are kept outside, Oliver feels that having to go out into the cold snowy landscape is not what a dog should do!
And so he yearns to get back inside but, wait, is that the pesky cat . . . . his job, you see, is to make sure that the cat doesn't bother the garden birds!
It wasn't that pesky cat and so he quickly and happily came back inside. A dog, after all, needs to be where his Master and Mistress are. Not outside, all by himself!
