The end of February

Today, February 28th, marks my emotional end of winter. Sure March and even April can be misery to the extreme but for now, I'm rejoicing in rain. Real, proper, flood your house when you leave the windows open even in February rain. Yes, I do. (Heating be damned.)
Winter has been treating me better than even my seasonal affective disorder could have hoped for. Begonia's bloomed and I've been downing 3 shot lattes twice daily thanks to theee most useful christmas present ever gifted by a human. A week ago a surprise heart appeared in my morning foam. A sign? I'll take it.

  1. Hey,
    Just found your blog recently. Love the pictures, little stories.

    I agree with you- winter can be so tough. I've got a bad case of SAD as well, and winters are a real killer for me. Spring is just around the corner though, as you said. Hurrah!

  2. A surprise foam heart is even lovelier to behold than any ornate latte art by a seasoned barista. That, all on its own, would make my day :)

    Beautiful images, as always..

  4. Ah, your foam is sending you love. Sweet...
    Load up on Vitamin D. My S.A.D. has been made so much better this winter by taking 5000 IUs of Vitamin D each day. But I'm still calling---Spring, where are you???

  7. Beautiful colors in those leaves! Did you get a nespresso machine? Those do really help with SAD. I spent a month 6 weeks in Chicago this winter and its was nespresso, nespresso, nespresso.

    I had a heart in the clouds the other day-- it was massive and perfect and only lasted long enough for me to enjoy it-- I, too, thought it a good omen!!

    Cheers! Here's to spring coming!

  16. me too! seasonal affective disorder- boo. I tell myself rejoice in what is good, and know that there will still be some 'dark' moments. and it helps to watch crazy artists, have you seen the documentary, 'our city dreams'- those are some crazy artists, but make me feel better somehow.

    I must confess I have an e-mail waiting to be sent to you. It just seems like it should be a letter! I have loved your posts, and am so pleased that as we are all trying to squeeze the rest of winter away you have posted some flowers/ buds/ and begonia leaves. Sigh. I think we can make it.

  24. I agree totally on celebrating the end of Winter. I like the way you celebrate at the end of Feb. For me it happens right about now. Between the return of the Robins, Starlings and Doves and the time change, I say Spring at last, Spring at last, Spring at last!
