Happy Spring (???)

Ah, Spring!  When a young man's fancy turns to thoughts of .....shoveling snow?

While most of you dear readers of Merriman Park are plucking tulips and daffodils and no doubt arranging them into delightful springtime bouquets,  this is what we woke up to here in drear Minnesota:

I think it was fellow miniaturist Kate who mentioned in a recent post that she was working on her latest project on her porch, where there was a nice, cool breeze blowing.  Well, bless her heart!  Guess I could go ahead and do the same thing --if I wanted to loose a few fingers and toes to frostbite.

Can you tell I'm still a little bitter over missing out on our trip to Florida? 

Oh, we say here in Minnesota: "oooh, it wooon't last tooo long, yooou betcha!"

And this is what it will look like in three months:

Today was almost warm enough to call it spring. While sitting in the sun dog was only shivering in small waves versus huge quake sized shivers.

It is a La Nina year, cold and wet. We are unlikely to have our normal 4 weeks of warm dry summer which takes place from July 14 until August 15.

Sitting here in Seattle in front of an infared heater to keep the chill off me.

Excuse me but is that actually a Christmas wreath on the front door of your bungalow? I finally took down the snowflake decoration the other day.

A Christmas wreath? Oh, please.
