Looks promising 🙂
I guess I should think of it in terms of the watering cans I will be saved hauling about when this monster snowbank melts…. ?? 🙂
Melody, lovely poem and picture combination. I can see you’re as fond of alliteration as I am.
Perhaps more so – my editor has been known to set limits on me! 🙂 Thanks, Marty.
love both the picture and the words ….aghast … perfect word!!!
The clock is ticking loudly now, so we’ll soon be trading ‘aghast’ for ‘busy’! 🙂
What an awesome metaphor!!! I love it!!!
Thank you my friend. Is your environment looking nicer these days?
Melody, I enjoyed this. I can see that you as a gardener must be aghast, but I’m actually envious of all the snow you get. However, I will enjoy spring too. Maybe if I would get out of my chair, get my hands a little dirty, and actually plant something, I’d understand your aghastness.
God bless you! Lovely weekend to you…
Thanks Maria! I think if you get some soil under your fingernails, your day will turn out splendidly… 🙂
That’s very good advice. However, my husband worked for years at the county health department in the environmental division, and he taught me about botchalism… Yikes. Plus, I grew up in the city. I know, I should get over all this, perhaps plant flowers instead of food. Last year, we had a bird feeder, and I asked the Lord to let some of the seed the birds flicked around to take root and give me a sunflower. Several of these grew up very nicely, and I watered them as well.
Ha ha – I hereby dub thee the ‘Accidental Gardener’! 🙂
It’s nice to be named by one’s friends.
How many shovels will it take to get us to spring?
Arrgggh! Whatever the number, it’s TOO MANY! 😦 Ah, well – we’re a pretty tough lot. I’m pretty sure we’ll survive this setback… 🙂
Trust is trying at times.
But real faith buys seeds even when the garden is shut off by snow… an interesting way to live, actually. Lots to think about.
Definitely ! Can you imagine how anxious Christ must feel at times to arrive?
His faith in us blossoming is infinite !
Ooh, I so love that! 🙂
What a gorgeous photo, Mel–you could sell that for big bucks, I reckon.
I’ve actually been approached by a small greeting card company about some of my images – interesting, no?
I love that photo as a portal to spring! 🙂 Wonderful job, Melody!!
Thanks, Debbie! The sun was doing its best to do some melting yesterday, despite the downright chilly night temps – it won’t be long now, and I’ll be able to actually get through that arch to my garden! 🙂
Thank you! Now, we wait for spring to come…
A perfect portal.
