paulh, the apocalypse is coming, it's just late

Hope is a hard emotion to muster in this, the winter of our discontent. At best, I can visit the garden center at Lowe's and fantasize about the plants that will start being brought there for sale in late March .

That's about nine weeks away.

Nine. Long. Weeks.

I'm already so sick of Winter that I feel like ordering seeds and growing them in little pots on my windowsill.

Hope is about looking for the first green shoots to poke through the top of the soil. Asparagus seeds are fun to grow. They look like little trees when they come up.

The avocado tree in our hall is growing new green leaves!

For years now, we've left it outside during the summer and brought it in for the winter. However, it's getting too tall now.
