I have a few British blogs that I love to visit. There is a certain something about them at this time of year, something I’m going to call green. They’ve got everything from grass to daffodils! The month of March, from where I sit, looks very similar to the months of November, December, January and February. There is green, but somehow the evergreen that I’ve got is a little different from fresh, newly popping out of the ground green.
There are ways to get around the lack of green, though. For example, it helps if you don’t look out the window. And own a green rug, and a couple of pieces of art in a large green landscape theme. Knit with green wool on small needles, so it takes longer. Dry dishes with green dish towels, and eat lots and lots of broccoli and spinach salad. I haven’t started drinking green smoothies, but with spring still officially 17 days away, I just might yet.
Meanwhile, I’d like to come in from walking the dog without cold hives on my face; I’d like to leave the house without seventeen layers on, and I’d like to wake up to -2°C instead of -32°C. I’m pretty sure I’d be happy not to hear the term “polar vortex” again until next winter. And if everything goes according to the weather forecast for this week, I just might get my wishes granted! Frozen fingers and toes crossed!
I’ll just have to get my green fix from all those other lovely blogs; and I sure am glad that I’m knitting another pair of green socks. I’ll pick up some daffodils and tulips from the grocery store, but I’ll wait until Friday, when they won’t freeze on the way home!
