Though it's not obvious from reading the blog, I've been under the weather since last Friday. Probably not the flu, just a bad head cold that's now moved down into my throat. Thus the bottle of Robitussin. My salty snowman gets to stay on the scene until it feels like winter is on its way out. Based on weather forecasts, he'll be around for a while longer.
March is always a tough month for northern gardeners. Adding a head cold to the cold temps outdoors makes this winter seem more endless than ever. Toss in the fact that I'm also still struggling with vertigo (probably BPPV) that reappeared in mid-November, and you can see why I feel more than a little tired of winter.
I'm convinced some warm sunny days will make all my problems disappear. Since they don't look like they'll be here soon, I'm conforting myself with memories of what the garden will look like once Spring finally makes an appearance.
