Crazy as it may seem with temperatures in the negative digits and 3 feet of snow on the ground, Spring is in the air! The days are getting longer …it doesn’t get dark until 6 pm now and seeds are starting to sprout. My leeks are coming up! I saw a notice posted in a coffee shop, offering coffee grounds to gardeners. My husband checked in with a local coffee shop near to where he works and if we provide a bucket, they are willing to fill it with used grounds. I finished painting another one of my masonite boards. I got a little carried away with this one but at this point in my life it’s all about the process, not the product. I had a bit of a laugh to myself when it was done because the cherub at the top came out looking like my Mom, totally unplanned. Lol! Art therapy, longer days and spring seeds work wonders to keep high spirits and hopeful thoughts for the coming days, even in the dead of winter.
