Ok, the weather here is driving me crazy! Literally. It seems that every time I have a chance to get out of the house, it is chilly and overcast. And when I’m stuck inside it’s nice and sunny and spring-like! I’m starting to take it personally.
I love being outside in spring. And I know, it’s only February so it’s not as if I should be looking for serious spring weather. But there have been so many warm and sunny days, I’ve begun to count on them being there whenever I can take advantage of them. To make matters worse, all the magazine covers and style & gardening web sites are already covered in sunny, springy pictures. I should ignore them because they are like the fashion magazines, a few months ahead of the current season.
But I want it to be spring! When the air is a mingle of chill and warmth, flowers start to shoot out of the ground (or even bloom) and everything looks shiny and new. I already have a few of these because of the unusual warmth:
But what I’d like is something more like this (which, by the way is Magnolia Plantation in Charleston, SC):
I know I’m asking for too much for the beginning of February. But I’m really ready for it. Because not too long after I get that, then I can get this (Wrightsville Beach, NC):
I don’t really think this is all going to happen in the next few weeks, as I really want it to. It sort of sounds like I have SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder), which is kind of silly, living in the south and all. I get way more sunshine now than when I was living in New England. Maybe it is more like SDA (Sunny Day Addiction!) or just plain, ol’ cabin fever!
