This is Not Right (Feb '15)

We live in a place with all 4 seasons.  I know winter.  This is not our typical winter.  Not even close, actually.  The last thing I remember doing for fun was a brunch in the very beginning of the month, and since then we've been sort of in survival mode.  Sure, I'm exaggerating a little bit - but not as much as I'd like.  We dash out between storms for provisions.  It took me 1/2 an hour to dig the trash can out so we could take it out to the road.
A normal February would be cold, but there would be warmish days during which we could check on the witch hazel flowers and the tiny greens coming up along the creek.  At the moment, I'm considering the use of binoculars, rather than skating across the yard on the thick crust of ice that covers the landscape. 
It's so bad that I am even tired of whining!

So I'm taking a virtual stroll through the summer.  Remember COLOR? Come along if you need a shot of sunshine!
