Spring has most definitely not yet sprung here in Western Pennsylvania.
A crafty lawyer in Ohio has even filed paperwork to sue poor Punxsutawney Phil for his poor prognostication skills. Another Ohio prosecutor believes the furry little rodent deserves the death penalty.
I’m just as sick of the cold, snowy weather as everyone else, but I have a kinder, gentler solution.
Flowers. Lots and lots of beautiful spring blooms.
Sister Chick was in town for a whirlwind visit recently. We went to see a couple of movies, enjoyed “afternoon high tea” at a local bed and breakfast, did some shopping, ate lunch at one of our favorite local eateries, and took in the spring flower show at Pittsburgh’s Phipps Conservatory.
Blooms of every color and genus artfully adorned the exhibit rooms. It was chicken soup for the winter-weary soul. Words cannot do justice to the beauty of this exhibit. Fortunately, I took my camera with me. The photos speak much more eloquently than I can.
I hope this little glimpse of spring brightens your day and gives you hope that spring truly is just around the corner!Sister Chick and I were two happy campers after seeing all the beautiful blooms.
Welcome spring! Please hurry!
What’s your favorite season?
