Courting Spring: Pansies

Mother Nature was at it again yesterday.  She dumped 3 1/2 inches of additional snow on us.  She's relentless.

As snow falls go, this is the kind I actually like because the flakes are HUGE and pretty.  You could actually hear the snowflakes hitting the ground.  

You would have been proud of me.  I was making the best of another winter storm by setting out a bowl to collect enough snow to make snow cream, reading magazines, and visiting blogs and my friends and family on Facebook.

Then I saw it.  My brat lovely cousin, Melanie posted this on her Facebook page...
   Beautiful day for shore, shorts and reggae music

I know, right? She knows I know exactly where she is.  She is at the Fort Pierce Farmers Market (One of my favorite places on earth) at the Fort Pierce Harbor.  Check out the blue skies.....check out the bare legs....check out the BEAUTIFUL PALM TREES!  UGH!

Then it occurred to me...she may have warm weather, the ocean, palm trees and gelato.....BUT she wasn't going to have yummy yummy snow cream.  HA!

So what if it snowed yesterday, so what if I missed the farmers market in my shorts, so what if I missed some fun raggae music....I will just court spring by having my morning coffee in this cheerful coffee mug adorned with colorful pansies and pink ribbon.    
I will be linking this post to Mosaic Mondays and Outdoor Wednesdays.  Please visit these wonderful ladies' blogs.   



  1. I'm with you, La~ about this time of year winter gets realllllly long~ but it makes spring even that much sweeter! Off to enjoy a nice hot mocha!

  2. Oh no...not more snow! I know how it feels to have one snow storm after the other. Luckily we only had rain from the last storm..but it was so cold none of the old snow melted!

    Before we know it will be hot and we'll be complaining of the I have to admit those sunny skies and palm trees look good!
