I just got an e-mail that made my day. My blueberries are coming!
I've been very agitated lately. Aggravated with work. Aggravated with my husband. Aggravated with my son. Aggravated with random passers-by who unfortunately fall into the wake of my wrath....
I am not a cold-weather, live in darkness, bundle into unrecognizability kind of person. I am a summer person. Yes, I sizzle like a vampire when exposed to sunlight, but that is only my physical body. My soul craves 90 degree temperatures, sand, sun, and cool island breezes. I've no doubt that this is is a factor in my foul mood.
In anticipation of spring, I ordered some plants during the height of the snowpocalypse. The catalogue wouldn't send them till the appropriate time for planting, but knowing they would come helped me. I ordered blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, cherries, asian pears...I went a little wild. And now the company has told me they have mailed the first part.
Spring has begun to show through the snowdrifts as well...I see the tips of crocus poking thru.
Viva la primavera!
