My suggestion to the weather…  Yesterday morning, we were down below zero. Today? Rain.

I think the seed catalogs are a much better form of entertainment than the outdoors!  Of course, seed catalogs are probably even worse than clothing catalogs.  You at least get the clothes that are advertised from the latter (even if you never can look like the model).  With the seed catalog (or plant) you don’t get the lovely flower, you get the seed and then you have to figure out how to grow it.  Actually, the tropical/flowering plant/tree ones are really the worst: the ad is always some decade plus plant, carefully grown, pruned, and photographed.  The one you get? A two year cutting.  We’re all dreamers!
