Ah, the joys of springtime in winter!
Pink and white flowering trees!
Emerald green moss!
And lastly green, green ferns set under tall trees, on those cool mountainsides!
Ah, the joys and wonders of early spring!
BUT, did you know that springtime in winter has a serious downside though?
I wouldn't lie to you.
Let me explain -
You see spring in winter means....
that besides all this breathtaking beauty (and my increase in trips to these beautiful places).
The PNW also has-
Cough, sneeze; sneeze, cough.
And ants unlimited.
Countless small, smelly crawling things all over our new white sink,
countertops and ME!
(Seriously YUCKY and a bit ouchy too!!!)
and of course the most serious downside....
the Slithery-One (aka snake) season is now OFFICIALLY open at Aimee's place.
As of Saturday--in the driveway--unnoticed totally by me till Farmer Boy pointed him (or her) out--
You know that even with THAT most serious downside,
I STILL love an early spring and always will:)
