Wait A Minute Mister Postman; Postcard Party 19

When living in the Midwest, about this time of year I feel like I was about to lose my mind.  I can remember a few winters such as the one that is occurring right now and my heart goes out to all that are trying to keep there spirits high despite the feet of snow and frigid temperatures.

I coped with my cabin fever and winter blahs through indoor plants and dreaming about gardening.  I would go as far as clipping ideas out of the mass of catalogs that would begin to arrive in my mailbox about this time.  I must say, for me, this time of year was torturous.  Gone were the magical moments of the holidays, gone were the parties and festivities to distract me, just snow and cold and more cold. 

I am hoping that my family and friends are hanging in there and can keep there spirits up.  Here are some beautiful garden scenes to help start your day dreams.  And remember spring will come, eventually.

Dear Colleen,
Here in Extra Snowy New England, we are doing our best to "Think Spring"! I had already posted a blog post last night referring to this very topic, so I added an update when I saw the topic of your Linky Party today! I'm doing everything I can to think warm thoughts!

Wishing you a great day!
