It's said that "April showers bring May flowers." I'm praying this year is no different! Enough snow. Enough freezing wind. I'm done with needing both rain jackets AND down coats, plus snow brushes, gloves, wellies/puddle jumpers/rain boots. It's too much! Upstate New York is longing for greenery; a bud, a blossom, any sign that spring is truly here! I've been biding my time in greenhouses and floral shops, drawn to the bright colors. I pick up small succulents and potted plants like they're candy bars at the checkout aisle! Those, in addition to a great playlist and audiobooks on the drive, help make the days pass a little more brightly. Here are a few more favorites if you're also stuck in the doldrums.
