I WANT TO BE HOT!

While sitting here wrapped up in fur blankets, wearing thermal underwear, and trying to keep my feet warm....I started thinking about all the reasons why Winter isn't my favorite season.


I'm pretty sure it has something to do with the fact that instead of looking into my backyard and seeing this.........



I get to feast my eyes on this...................



And when I arrive home at the end of a long day ....instead of coming here.........


I return to this...............

Summer days...floating in the pool...sipping an icy coke.....


slipping on ice and wondering where is my dang pool???



GORGEOUS GREEN..................


CRAPPY BROWN AND WHITE..............


HAPPY FISHIES.................


FROZEN SEA FOOD.............



In the spring I enjoy stepping out my front door...........


Now I just have to watch my step............


Beautiful colors of spring....OH how I miss thee..........


Winter..........you suck!


I really need to have a chat with the big guy upstairs. Maybe we can negotiate this whole winter thing.......Either that or I'm going to buy a Hummer and drive endlessly around in circles so I can speed up Global Warming..... Because I am more than ready for the return to this...........










ENOUGH IS ENOUGH..... SPRING....DON'T MAKE ME COME AND GET YOU!

Hi Nikkiness! You go girl! Oh, I'm sorry you're so cold and have all that snow. But soon, Dear One, soon you'll have your beautiful yard back. And I do mean 'Beautiful!" Wow!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Grand Pooba said...

Wow! You live in heaven don't you! Your house and yard and garden and pool and pond are so pretty! Simply paradise.

I say go hop in that hummer baby!

KC Mom said...

Ah..Nikki, Nikki...don't you know you're already "hot"!!
You've got green envy bad! I'm afraid to even look at pictures of my house in the summer. I may have to move if I do!

Jill said...

Your property is beautiful spring or fall! I can't agree with you on the winter snow because I MISS IT!! I would love to trade places with you just for a week! Then I must come back to be close to Mickey MOuse!

Linda's Blue Gate said...

I don't blame you one bit that is way too much cold for anyone to live in..... we were 65 in Texas today.. the snow is pretty but brrrrrr...... and who wouldn't want to gaze upon your gorgeous yard in summer it is stunning.... just keep under the blanket warm weather is coming...

Erin said...

The pictures of your house in the spring are beautiful! It snowed all day here today...ugh.

Coco said...

If it makes you feel better your house and yards are gorgeous!

Ann On and On... said...

By the time your post ended I was crying. Oh, this winter is getting to me as well....and I like winter.
Thanks for sharing the fab. photos, party at your house this summer. :D

Peggy-Just A Plain Gal said...

Nikki, your home and yard are gorgeous, no matter what the weather is!

However...I hear ya on the waiting for spring thing! It has been soooo cold that I've been considering asking the Man Upstairs if he could just do away with January and February!

Anyway, we finally caught a break from the cold, althought everything is still BROWN! Today was a balmy 72 degrees! Nyah, nyah, nyah! ;)

roy/elisabeth dean said...

You lawn looks prettier covered with brown and snow than mine looks IN THE SPRING! I think this might inspire me to get to work on mine!
Maybe Phil the groundhog was mistaken and you will have your spring soon~
♥ Lilly

Our really empty nest said...

Nikki, Your spring/summer yard is BEAUTIFUL with a capital B, I would be sick missing that yard too! I my younger days i loved winter and snow, but now, I say let us have a white Christmas then good riddence to the white stuff! Try to stay warm, Sue

The Blue Ridge Gal said...

Yes, I'll agree... the green months of the year are easier on the eye than the brown and white of winter, but the humidity here just sucks the wind out of my sails, so I'll keep the brown and white as long as it will have me. (mostly brown since it's only snowed once here this winter)

Justine said...

Okay, I think you know I'm already totally jealous of your cold winter weather, right? Well, now I covet your damn house and yard too!!!!!!!! Woweeeeeee... how many square feet is your house? It looks ginormous! And beautiful. Waaaaaaaaaa! Can I move in with you? I'd have to take the kids and the kitties, but I promise, I'll leave asshole at home!

Justine :o )

Tiffany said...

Your house and yard are gorgeous!! Now I don't feel so bad mentioning it was in the upper 70's today. hehe

Mary Moore said...

Listen, you are SO HOT, if I was gay...

Sorry, got carried away.

We have more snow here than you do, and I know of what you speak. Tomorrow's forecast: FREEZING F**KING RAIN on TOP of the 304 feet of snow. Oh, I loooove winter.

xinex said...

Your garden is so pretty when it is not winter. I can't blame you for getting tired of winter. There is so much to enjoy in your garden and the pool. Your house looks fabulous too. I hope you are feeling better!...Christine

Renna said...

Ah, if I lived in a place as gorgeous as yours, I'd want it to be forever summer, too!

I cracked up at the hummer comment! ;-Þ

Heather said...

I can't wait for spring either! Really I can't wait to send my very hyper boys outside and out of my hair!

Michelle said...

I'm with you, winter sucks. Your house is so pretty and I hope your Koi didn't really freeze to death.

Melissa said...

Amen, amen, and AMEN! I hate the winter, the cold and the wet. And when someone says, "we need the moisture" I want to kick their teeth in!

Shannon said...

I hear ya, sister! Although, I really don't want to tell you that we've been enjoying 70 degree weather here for the last three days. BUT, it just makes me think what's coming next month... 'cause 70s in February means were going to pay for it in March, I just know it!

Cynthia said...

Hi Nicki,
I so miss spring and summer too! Winter is just too darn long. Your gardens and home are beautiful1 Lucky you! Cindy

J'Ollie Primitives said...

Talk about trying to find the silver lining.....the ONLY good thing about four freaking feet of snow is that it hides a winter's worth of dog poop.

Guess what I was shoveling instead of snow this morning?

Mama said...

While I looooove the snow I can see why you are anxious for spring to come asap, your home looks STUNNING in the spring time and those fish must be feeling as cold as you, roll on Spring, go get it I say Nikki, Kathy.

Tristan said...

Sounds like somebody has the winter blues!

I LOVE winter..lol..like literally, I think I could live in Alaska!

Nice to stop by after such a too-long absence, as I love to laugh, & YOU can ALWAYS make me do that!!! Thanks, Nikkii!!! Warmly, (HA~ "Literally", my friend~ I live in the desert, remember? Hugs to the 8 legs, too!)~~~ Linda

cheryls fascinatingfinds said...

Ma'dame French said...

Frozen fishies...lol And to think I actually considered moving back to cold azz Canada thanks for reminding me of why I left in the first place;) French

mishebe said...

I agree. It is supposed to snow here again and i am So friggn over it. Pretty soon i am going to start making curtains for the outside windows if i am going to be stuck inside!lol. mishelle

Firefly@www.firefly-shop.org said...

I feel the same way :)

beth at aunties said...

I really, really hear ya!

I hope you both are feeling MUCH better...
Your home and yard looks so beautiful in each of the seasons. I am starting to think S.L. is warmer than New England though!
Layton got a new foot of snow today and we only recieved rain and flurries... I am not complaining!!! Darn they just said we are getting it during drive time n the morning... Please go buy that Hummer!

Picket said...

Thermal Underware?????? Oh sorry...couldn't get the mental picture out of my mind seeing you in red longjohns with the flap in the back! lol lol I love seeing your beautiful yard & I am so with you on this wanting Winter to be over...I actually saw some yellowbells blooming in a yard the other day and almost ran off the road! This Groundhog didn't see no shadow so I am waiting on my early Spring! lol lol Have a great week girl!

Tamara Jansen said...

Spring's on the way

Cynthia said...

I love your yard and garden. I'm feeling the same way you are about winter. I don't know if I've ever mentioned it but I'm a Landscape Architect so I especially love gorgeous, healthy plants like you have going on in that yard. I wish my budget for my own yard matched the visions I have for it in my head. It would look a lot like YOUR yard! Enjoy!

Anne Fannie said...

Hi Nikki,
I have to say looking at your pictures made me thankful I live in California right now...LOL
I hate snow, most of our kids moved to Utah, not this chic, I am staying put here!
Love, Ann

onlymehere said...

Oh my gosh why have I never seen this water wheel house before?! I love it! Your yard is beyond phenomenal. I too want a return to spring. I saw a cartoon the other day where an old lady said she personally is responsible for global warming with her hot flashes.....okay she said it funnier but it got me wondering, do you think they're going to start putting a tax on menopausal women for causing global warming like they want to tax livestock (cows) bz they emit methane gas that copntributes to global warming? Hmmmmm, food for thought but I think they'd have millions of menopausal women pounding on the door of the white house if they did and trust me the senators, congressman and Obama don't want to deal with that!! LOL! Okay, it's late and I'm now officially off my rocker. Have a great night.

david mcmahon said...

If it's hot weather you want, let's swap. It was 113 degrees here on Saturday, with bushfires.

Swap?

Came here from Braja's blog.

ko said...

wow! IT IS DEFinately winter there! I HAVE THE AC on here in TEXAS! I love your house! IT is o GOrgeous! Even in the SNOW! Thank you for your kind words! I LOVE YA FRIEND!

Diane said...

Oh Nikki, You're so funny! It sounds like you're feeling better. I certainly hope so!

Your gardens are to die for! So, Go on, what are you waiting for? Go get Spring! ♥ Diane

tam said...

Hey Nikki! Girl I am so with you on the lets go spring-already-come on! Usually I don't mind a little winter but last year being so long and this one-I have had enough! We just have to keep sending the sunshine vibes!LoL!
We are getting more snow right now-crap! It is suppose to not stick -lets see what happens? I will beleive it when I see it.
Hope you are having a fun week dispite the snow!~Tam:D

Lilly's Life said...

Oh I dont blame you at all. Those warm pictures look devine. Although I love the wintry house picture. Soon, soon! Then I will be complaining of the cold.

mbkatc230 said...

Oh my, that snow does look miserable! You have a gorgeous home and that yard is a paradise! I'm with you, come on summer. I can't complain of snow, but it's nasty and brown and grey and just plain cruddy looking right now. Sounds like you're feeling better, our crud finally left the building! Kathy

Kritta22 said...

Do your fish do okay in the frozeness??

We lost a few one winter but for the most part, they were okay.

jesse said...

HAHHAHAA, oh my god, you are hilarious. Your house is so beautiful!! But oh, your poor fishies!!

bj said...

Oh, Nikki...out here in West Texas, the temp is running around 60 to 70 almost every day. Unbelievable! I hate...just hate snow. Brrrr, too cold for me.
Your house and yard is so beautiful...you are a blessed girl.
xo bj

Bo said...

Hi Nikki...I almost feel your pain about wanting spring to come on already...almost, 'cuz all this week we're going to be in the 70s! Hope the "crud bug" has packed up & left your beautiful abode & commode...LOL Hugs, ♥ Bo

Braja said...

Nikki honey, can you pls send some of your snow to Australia? :(

Twice as Nice said...

Did you do all that landscaping yourself? It's just beautiful. I never know just where to plant what. Yours looks so natural like it's been there forever. I'm with you about the summer sister! These people that live in the south are always ready for cooler weather and I'm always saying NOOOOOOOOOO! Winter is just getting longer and longer. I pretty much hibernate to get through it!

~♥~ Monica S said...

I certainly understand where you're coming from!!! I can't wait for spring either...
You house and garden is sooooo beautiful!!! I have nothing like that to look forward to though... but there's other things luckily!!

Monica

Rebecca said...

I feel your pain! I am a fellow MA girl. I am so sick of the snow. My husband realized he has plowed for 9....yes 9...storms this year. And probably are not even done!

You have a gorgeous backyard!

Jessica said...

Nikki~

Your yard is amazing and your pond, WOWEE~ Cartwheel worthy! It's really incredible. I can see why you miss Spring. I have a question, what happens to your fish in the winter? Are they still in the pond? Do they reaally freeze? That's ALOT of snow. I was just wondering.

Hugs~ J

Sincerely Yours said...

Hi Nikki! I'm guessing you are feeling better!!!Yeaaa! I love that water wheel in your pond garden; don't remember seeing that before! Now if you didn't compare the spring/winter photos you'd appreciate the "beauty" of your winter garden!!!lol Hang on spring's comin!!! BTW it was 65here Saturday and too hot!lol Just think of how much easier it is to spot the "boy"s droppings in the white snow!!!lol Have a fun day - Sincerely, Jeannette

Sandy Toes said...

Your gardens are amazing!!!!
-sandy toe

tammy said...

Don't blame you a bit. I don't do winters. Your gardens are beautiful! While I've got the pool thing going, I still haven't figured out which flowers will survive here. Our brown season is during the summer. How about you come live with me during the winter, and I'll come live with you during the summer?

Smilingsal said...

Your place is beautiful, but I totally get what you're saying. Why not just get a giant crane and move it all to some location SOUTH!

Amy said...

It's February right? The high today here will be 76. You just need to move south.... :D

Midlife, menopause, mistakes and random stuff... said...

I'm sooooo withya on this one Blah, Blah, Blah!! I'm not a winter girl either.

Bring on the summer sos that I can put on my sandals and sip Mint Juleps by my pool!!

Kristen said...

Wow what pretty flowers and gardens you have!

I hope one day to get my yard into some kind of garden...right now I'm trying to get the red clay(thanks NC) into a happy soil for plants to live.

michelle said...

I am driving a big ole truck, so I am doing my part to help you. DOes that mean I can come take my vacation at your house this spring?

Becky said...

I'm witha girl!! I don't like winter at all!!!! Not even a tiny bit! YUCK YUCK YUCK!

cindy said...

Your yard is beautiful ...in the spring!..I know how you feel...it is raining here and they even canceled school because the roads and parking lots are too icy!....praying for spring...~Cindy~

French Fancy said...

What beautiful grounds you have, Nikki. Did you design it all yourself? You really have an *eye*, as they say.

Ginny said...

Sign me up for driving in circles too!!! I hate, Hate, HATE winter!!!
Keep warm spring is on its way!

Meadowsweet Days said...

Hey Nikki~ Now, now..... be patient..... better days are coming! Your pond is gorgeous! Are those Koi? They're beautiful. I lost 6 huge Koi last summer. I was so upset.... they were old and and pretty big.... I'm not sure what killed them. Your property is beautiful, I can't blame you for being anxious!

Carol

Darlene said...

Nikki I have to tell you that your place is beautiful Spring or Winter! I can totally understand why you would want Spring to get here though cause in Spring it is GORGEOUS! Do the fish survive through the winter??? Is there some kind of heater in the pond?

ann said...

A huge ditto from me.I wish you would go and drag it's sleepy little hinney here quick...Ann

Pedaling said...

your home, pool and landscaping is the perfect place, i'm thinking, for a bloggy summer retreat.
i say invite 10 of your favorites and we will (assuming i am one of them) save the date and pack our bags!

Carolynn said...

For all the cold, wet weather we get here on the Northwest, I am grateful for all the green we get under those grey skies.

You have a beautiful backyard and one that I would be pining for, as well.

What do you do with your koi fish during the winter?

Belle (from Life of a...) said...

I'm with you my friend...TIRED of brown.

Lee Laurie said...

I agree with you, I can't wait for Spring! Your home is so beautiful. It is beautiful in all of the pictures. The spring ones and the snowey ones.

Rachel said...

What the hey, next vacation I book is going to be at *YOUR* house!!! What a paradise in the summer...WOWWWW!!!

Jenners said...

Wow! If I lived at your house, I would never leave (well, except in the winter). Amazing garden, gorgeous pool! Could I book our next vacation there ... perhaps in early July?

No wonder you miss spring with all the beauty in your backyard!

Ginger said...

LOL you crack me up. I was drooling over your yard and pool and wondering if it freezes over to make an ice skating rink, or do you drain it? Then I saw the fish pond and wondered about the fish if they froze...then scrolled down and you said frozen seafood and I couldn't stop laughing.
Funny, you said that about global warming...I asked my son if he would drive his Hummer up this weekend for a visit to give us some global warming so we can thaw out. Al Gore needs to come to Utah with his global warming speech so we can laugh at him.
I'm freezing!!!!!
Ginger

I SOOOOO agree this Winter thing is getting so OLDDDD.

I'll bring the coke (although I am really trying to quit) we can float together :)

hellosweetworld said...

I hate winter too. Your backyard is gorgeous!

Swirl Girl said...

You live in a veritable paradise. An idyllic garden fantasy!! Did you do all that yourself??

You could move here , where it's warm(er) and have that all year round!

Laura said...

I feel your pain. I'm with you 100%. One day of winter is one day too many! Bring on spring!

Chris said...

AWWWW, you poor baby, have to look at that mansion all covered in snow, that looks like a picture on a postcard. I feel so sorry for you. Now any time you want to swap houses, I'll be glad to suffer in yours. :)

Hugs,
Chris

It does feel like a long and dark winter, doesn't it! Don't worry it WILL soon be Spring!

Your home looks so pretty in the snow.
Take care, DebraK

Kat said...

I am so done with winter too. Spring. Now. Please.

::Jan:: said...

This made me so sad for you Nikki. You are still freezing over there. My goodness. I love your yard. So lucious.

That hole in the water sort of cracks me up though. You should put one of the fishing huts over by it.

Beverly said...

I'm with you - Spring is my favorite season of the year. It looks so cold there. I did see my daffodils pushing out of the ground this morning.

♥Trina♥ said...

You have to admit that the pictures of the snow are gorgeous! But I'm with you. I am 100% a SUMMER GIRL!

Susan S. said...

MAYBE God gives you so much winter so you'll appreciate what a beautiful Spring/Summer you have. The spring pics are BEAUTIFUL...love your yard, pool and house! Do the KOI stay alive in that cold water or do you have to bring them inside? Could they be swimming in your bathtub as wel speak!?!?

Lisa Loo said...

Its getting to be like leaving a comment on the Pioneer Woman site--practically useless--cuz who actually reads that many comments??!!

Your summer house IS way more inviting than where you winter but can I just say one nice thing for winter? All that moisture makes for all that beautiful green stuff--at least thats what they told me in science class.

Drive a hummer in a circle to speed up global warning--do these thoughts really originate in YOUR head??!! YOU MAKE MY DAY CRUMPY!!! OOO--look--Grumpy Crumpy---I kill myself....

wendy said...

I am feeling the pangs of a LONG winter as well, I HATE IT. Even though I grew up in the Great White North, I don't like winter. Can I come sit by your pool---when it thaws. If I were making a world..there would be NO winter.

Mimi Sue said...

I hear ya sister. Course here in Utah we have the best snow on earth. Don't be jealous. Mimi

Michele said...

What a dream yard!!

wenderful said...

As I sit immersed in fog and blah, I am all empathy for you. Where's my UV lamp already!?!
You've got a gorgeous place indeed!

Judi said...

Hi Nikki..
I know exactly what you are saying girlfriend...I've just about had enough of that white stuff too. I get tired too of dressing up and bundling to keep warm.
Keep that throw on you...I think we're on the winning side.
Keep warm..and have a lovely evening.

Stacy's Random Thoughts said...

LOVE your house and yard - during any season! :) I would probably agree with you, except that we, as you know, have been bypassed when it comes to true winter weather this year... So instead of having the snow cover up the sleeping landscaping, the warmish weather and rain has only made it brown and mucky...yucky! I'd love to have one good snowstorm to blanket the area and give me some 'pretty' landscaping, but in lieu of that, I'll be happy with warmer/drier air and get the party started for the blooming of all my plants...forget this 'in-between' crap we've been having this year! ;)

That Girl in Brazil said...

Those pictures are fabulous -

Wanna come visit me? I have sweat dripping down my back right this very second ....

JyLnC said...

I love the changes in the seasons and that's why I live in the north. I always look forward to the next season just as I reach my saturation point with the present season. I love the variety.

It keeps life interesting and I always appreciate spring after the cold winter. I think snow is beautiful and I love the bare branches against a blue or grey sky in the winter.

I absolutely hate to sweat and humidity is my least favorite season side effect. Don't give me the same weather all year long...change it up.

Spring is just around the corner...keep hanging in there.

Charli and me said...

Hi Nikki, Your yard is so beautiful! I just love your pond. I know what you mean about winter. I just want it to be gone too. Enough is enough! If you do decide to go get spring send it over here when your done with it :>)

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Oh Nikki, please do have that chat with The Man! I am SO ready for spring, and your pictures just made me that much more anxious for spring. Beautiful yard. When I start feeling this way, I always wonder if I would appreciate spring as much if I didn't have to go through winter. But I'm sure willing to give it a try without winter! laurie

bloggin' Chrystal said...

For the 1st time...YOU didn't make me laugh! Instead, I find myself envious that the you the most beautiful of both worlds....snow in the winter and sunny sun in the summer. Here in the South...we don't see snow---only sleet...we longggggg for it.....some even pray for it.........others fake it in photos and soap suds. Oh...how I wish I were seeing your view. LOL!

Tracey said...

I am ready for spring too....and where is your pool???!!

Shannon said...

Oh! That does suck! I'm so sorry. I won't even tell you that it was 76 degrees here today...

imjacobsmom said...

Please hop in that Hummer and get driving!!!!!!! Although we were in the 40's the last few days - it felt like we were in a heatwave. We actually had RAIN! Remember, the 100th post is next - stay tuned...Jacob's got a great prize in the works! ~ Robyn

Nana said...

Yes, go get Spring for us. I love your beautiful yard. At least we have nice cozy houses to warm up in. I cannot wait to get out in the garden!!!!!!!!!! I want to see my Tulips.

Gollum said...

I hope warm weather comes your way soon--but I loved the pictures. Your home looks great in all seasons.

Blueberry Buttons said...

I agree with you, "come on spring time". I love the frozen sea food. Cute!!!

Mrs. B. Silly said...

Hey Nikster, Since I am in God's Country (yes I'm rubbing it in!) I'l have a talk with him and ask for a little sunshine to come your way. It is chilly here so if it makes you feel any better, I am not hot too.
I wish were here!
Hugs, Bridget

jill jill bo bill said...

So move next door to me and quit whining. It's 68 here.




Hurry and visit your daughter!!!

Bobbi Jo said...

Nikki,
I think you need to live in Arizona, the valley of WAY too much sun. In the valley it is green and stays that way as long as you water everything.
I will trade you for your snow any day. I hate the heat!
Hugs, Bobbi Jo

Kathi~Lavender, Lace and Thyme said...

Now..what was your address again? I'll be dropping by when the time is right! LOL :)

I would never leave home with a yard like yours, I continue to work on mine. Do you take care of all that yard or do you have a gardener and cabana boy? Wow!

Melissa Wertz said...

Nikki, you have a pretty yard! So very pretty! Now we get cold weather, but rarely get snow. It has been spring like the last few days. Today, we are supposed to get the tornadoes that go along with it... Oh well... it is what it is.

Love the photos whether spring, summer or winter!

countrygirl3031 said...

Oh Nikki, I'm with ya girlfriend! I love your yard and flowers...tooo pretty!

Hugz,

storypeople said...

Hilarious! These winter complaint sessions always are, as long as I'm sitting in Santa Barbara. When I was sitting in the tundra-like Midwest in a decaying farm house heated by two wood stoves that needed relentless attention, I think I'd have been weeping.

Oh wait. I was.

Thanks for the comment about my daughter getting married. That is really sweet of you.

Traumatized is not quite the right word though. I think I'm in total shock and need a double dirty martini to feel just a wee bit number ;=)

Annie Valentine said...

Okay, I have to comment again, even though you probably won't read it. I kind of think you have a really cool blog. If I knew anything about photos and putting them on the computer, then finding them again to post on my blog (without the help of the Geek Squad), I would try to be more like you.

Must run, my child is suffocating outside in a snowdrift.

Marrdy said...

You could come back to Utah where there is no snow in the Valley and everything is brown and cloudy. Although Alta does have 101 inches. (If you ski! Which I don't.)

Not The Rockefellers said...

Girl, I hope you got your chance today! 2-11

60 degrees at noon today in NH!

You gotta love Febrauary in New England!

Peace - Rene

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

Beautiful home but so much prettier when it's nice and green and springy like. Maybe you should move here. It's about 76 degrees and the sun is brightly shining!

Brenda said...

I'm a long-time stalker (but a nice one)first-time commenter, and I just had to tell you how beautiful your backyard is in the Spring/Summer. But I have to say I also see the beauty in the dead of winter. We are still working on our landscaping and now, thanks to this post, I'm suffering from garden-envy!

Just Beautiful!!!

Jannie Funster said...

Your home Is GORGEOUS!!!

And before you know it, spring will be with you!

Tomarie said...

I wanted to come by here and thank you SO MUCH for the sweet things you said about our cabin over at Laurie's! It is so appreciated! I'm afraid I was the one taking the pics...and still in my robe getting ready for the wedding! LOL Thank you again! L~

tara @ kidz said...

Oh, I think ALL the pictures are beautiful! I personally love winter. Don't get me wrong - I love all the other seasons too. I love the symbolism of spring - renewal and hope. But I love me some white fluffy snow too!

ps can I come over to your house for a pool party this summer????

Kim @ Forever Wherever said...

I can understand your frustration! Your yard is so beautiful and I'm sure you want to sit in a chair by the pool! Since I'm in Florida we just have tons of brown leaves to trim. My banana tree look awful!
Don't go crazy just yet...hang in there!

bernthis said...

Okay, I'll take the snow but you gotta give me the pool. sorry that is the deal, no compromises

MiMi said...

I love these pictures. Your yard is so beautiful. Let me know when the pool is open!
By the way, thanks for sending fellow bloggers over to see the wood spider video. I included a big thank you to you on my post today.

santamaker said...

Your yard is AMAZING !! My goodness, could you give us some gardening tips sometime?
I agree about winter, that's why we moved from Delaware to Ga. It's a much nice winter.

Next time you venture out, buy yourself some flowers. Better yet, hint at the hubs.

Amazing how looking at something that is alive and blooming can really raise your spirit.

Well, flowers and a bottle of wine.

Sending warm hugs!! I still ADORE your house, even when covered in snow - Em

I'm so with you. We'll show Al Gore a thing or too about global warming. Your yard is beautiful...when it's NOT WINTER! DUH!!!

I feel your pain Nikki. Thank goodness we've finally had a few 'warmer' days. Wednesday was especially nice. Seeing the ice on the roofs and sidewalks melt really did my heart and longjohns good.

Did you know we will be Springing forward in less than a month? March 8th!! Yipee!!!
