I just looked outside, yep it’s still winter.
Bears may be on to something. Maybe I should just crawl into a cave and wake in spring? After enjoying a few mild days following a Polar Vortex, we are back into a deep freeze. What the snowflake is a Polar Vortex Boomdee? According to Wikipedia:
A polar vortex is an upper level low-pressure area lying near the Earth’s pole. … The bases of the two polar vortices are located in the middle and upper troposphere and extend into the stratosphere. Beneath that lies a large mass of cold, dense arctic air.
To put it simply, it’s banana’s cold. As is evident by our weather news on this particular day.
What’s hard about winter? For me, there’s nothing green outside. No lawn, no garden flowers, no veggie patches, zippo, nadda ! Well almost nadda. I make garden pots for the porch that include cuts of pine, spruce and baubles of the season.
Once potted, watered and placed outside, they freeze and stay green until the weather warms up. The greenery not only greets visitors through-out the holidays, it reminds me that, ‘this too shall pass’ (winter) and there will be another spring.
What’s that? You don’t have room for a giant pot?
Unless you’re a bear in a cave, you probably have a door.
I normally buy a fresh wreath to decorate at home.
I thought it turned out so pretty !
Ha! I didn’t make it 😀 It’s not even fresh!!
Could you tell?
While I always enjoyed decorating a fresh wreath, I didn’t enjoy having the wire frame left over year after year. This pretty faux wreath looks so real, came pre-decorated and pre-wired with lights *and* cost less than a real wreath on a wire frame. You have to pick your battles right?
Two frozen green thumbs up!
How about you?
