Dreaming of Summer

By Christa Terry

Raise your hand if you’ve had quite enough of winter, thankyouverymuch. If you’re not raising your hand I’ll have to assume it’s warm where you are, you’ve just gotten back from a long and warm vacation, or you can afford to keep your heat cranked all day and all night. None of these conditions apply to me and mine so I am ready for summertime to arrive, even if it means chilly (but not cold) blustery days and a glut of April showers before the truly warm weather shows up. Here are some pics of summery gardens that may help you last out the winter!

    Yeah, I can see why, Pam! When June hits, I’ll send you some New England winter vibes.

    I’m in Florida and its 46 degrees out right now!!!! It’s not warm in most of the country right now. I’m soo ready for winter to be over. My AC wasn’t made for running heat.

    Bring on the warmth everywhere, Jessica! We can all use it, apparently!
