It's officially That Time of February. That point where I reach so bloody sick of winter I need to make a greenhouse trip before I start stabbing someone in the face with a snow shovel. Now to figure out the best day to get myself over to Wilton (my favorite greenhouse, the House by the Side of the Road) and wander around their enormous complex, smell the wet earth, the green plants, wave at the koi, and harden my heart against the ivy and the bamboo who will be looking at me mournfully, pleading with me to take them all home. This is, in fact, the only thing that gets me through February, and like clockwork, it inevitably hits about the second week of said vile month. It makes me no end of happy to be this close to it right now. (I suspect I'll end up at botanical gardens when moving closer to Boston happens, eventually.)

Now, though, it is time for me to run off and take His Highness, Prince Fluffybutt for his walkies. :)


PS: Fire, Fiber, and Facebook.

So, yeah... I went to go head out to walk His Highness, Prince Fluffybutt, today, and found this ) I swear there's a car under there. After a bit of digging, we were able to get it moved a bit to one side, so I can actually make it out of the driveway now. It made a snow angel ).

Remember that gate I've been taking pictures of as it slowly vanishes under the snow? This ) is it from the other side, on the sidewalk. (Due to the town snowblowing the sidewalk into the yard, we've now lost it.) Across the street, we have a parking lot. ) It's the same ground level as the driveway. For some scale, the boy waded in ). I believe the phrase he so delicately used was "I'm up to my balls." Mind you, the boy is 5' 10" (5' 11" in his boots). He said there was still more snow under him, he wasn't actually on the ground.

It can be spring NOW PLEASE!
