I broke my ankle very badly last Spring. That kept me housebound, rolling around in a wheelchair. I didn’t get back in the garden until September. Basically, I missed the whole warm season. So, I’ve had a double whammy of cold weather and I’ve had it up to here.
Oh well, I’m not the only one complaining and it is the end of February. With March we should get warmer, shouldn’t we? Where is this Global Warming those yahoos were panicking over?

Hi Erika, I know how you feel, Last january 14, 2014, I fell on ice at the end of my driveway and broke my arm. What a painful ordeal, I had to have the arm operated on to set the bone. This past winter I have used a walking stick and walking crampons, not the mountain climbing ones. So, I have made it through this winter with no casualties, but winter is not done with us yet and tomorrow is Spring. The forecast is for snow on the first day of Spring here in Maine. Will it ever end. Well, anyways enjoy your day and keep thinking Spring.
