Warm thoughts of Spring

Florida weather is always odd, but this February has been particularly bipolar.

That being said, it seems my pea plants have decided it is time for spring and have valiantly started producing blossoms. Last week the first couple blooms showed their faces, and then I came back this weekend after being out of town to be greeted by many smiling faces. My camera batteries died, though, and now it is raining so no pictures as of yet, but they shall be forth coming.

In the mean time, dream of spring.

Spring, the sweet spring, is the year’s pleasant king,
Then blooms each thing, then maids dance in a ring,
Cold doth not sting, the pretty birds do sing:
      Cuckoo, jug-jug, pu-we, to-witta-woo!

Happy Belated New Year

Hello there and Happy 2014!

Hope that this New Year has been treating you well thus far.

I am not even going to attempt to make up for lost time in any sort of detailed manner, but here are some photos of the garden and the holidays.

12 Therefore lift your drooping hands and strengthen your weak knees, 13 and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be put out of joint but rather be healed. [Hebrews 12]

Stay warm and enjoy the Olympics.
