Hope



I keep passing by flowerbeds like these (this one is on Beacon St), and it gives me a glimmer of hope that the cold weather might actually go away sometimes soon. You can even see a bit of purple blossoms in the top center of the photo (click to enlarge).

On my pessimistic days, I walk by these flowerbeds and think "I bet those flowers DIE because it's so freezing cold out!". Really, it's been in the high 30's/low 40's lately and it's not really that cold, but it's also been wet, which always makes it feel colder than it really is. The wind doesn't help either, and today was a windy one.

If it is any consolation, the weather here in Florida has been erratic too ... not like the Florida I know at all! Yesterday, I think, it went up to 88, but it seemed a lot cooler. LOL

Those purple buds are crocuses and the bigger leaves look like tulips to me. I love early Spring flowers! They are the best! My favorite is when the crocuses are out by St Patty's Day :) Go hearty buds go!
