“[Hobbits] love peace and quiet and a good tilled earth.”
~ J.R.R. Tolkien
I’m a hobbit! Who knew?
It’s still chilly and there’s snow in the forecast. Snow, for goodness sake! The never-ending winter continues. I’ve pulled out my heat mats and seeds but still haven’t planted anything. I’m finding it hard to get into gardening mode when it’s still so cold outside.
Still, I noticed yesterday that some crocuses are about to burst into bloom in my front garden. Later, when Gerry and I go out, I’ll see if we can stop at the community garden plot. My spinach was up when I was there a week or so ago; just seeing that growth gives me hope.
It’s coming, I know, but spring seems so distant this year. I’m choosing to believe we will have a stellar summer to make up for it–long, hot, and dry, like the ones I remember from long ago.
Today: making plans for a quick weekend trip, making appointments, running some errands, and thinking spring.
