The difference between cabin fever and a healthy outlook
towards winter often hinges on your choice of hobbies.
Take Buddy, for instance. His idea of a good time is to watch and wait for the orchids to re-bloom. That takes about 6 months so winter boredom is not an issue for him...
I am considerably more productive.
Not only am I watching the Orchids.
I'm watching the Azaleas, the Cyclamen.....
And the African Violets, too.
And, I'm watching the countdowns. Hard to escape that info! Seems all of my garden buddies have installed cute little counters on their blogs ~ bragging up the fact that spring is just days away.
Which prompted me to create my own little widget. But, after I plugged in all of the pertinent details, and discovered it was still 90 days 'til planting season, I had a huge change of heart. Best to ignore this information. For at least another month, or two. :(
