CHATTER FROM THE MUSE

Good ole Puxatawney Phil!

February 2, 2013
I don't care if he is only right 30% of the time.  He told me what I wanted to hear this year......so........Three cheers for Puxatawney Phil!  Spring will be early this year.  That's what I want. 
 
I don't like winter.  When the last leaf falls to the ground in the fall, I start looking for Spring.  When I lived in Florida for 20 years, the only season I missed was Spring.  Actually, I searched and found Spring in Florida.  A drive through the Everglades or the Mangrove swamps in Spring is delightful.  The faint leaf buds on the cypress trees and the soft greening of the mangrove trees are there for those who really want to see.  Spring is not as obvious as it is in the north but it is there. 
 
Winter is too, once you are aclimated and your blood adjusts to the thinness required by the heat of summer.  The 50 and 60 degree winter so loved by the snowbirds who flock south every winter feels really cold.  I remember bundling up with jacket and scarves to walk the beach and watching our northern visitors in scimpy bathing suits.  I told my children,"We looked that silly when we first moved here!"
 
I live in the north again and Spring is coming.  I am thrilled.  In just a matter of weeks I will be in my flower garden with dirt under my fingernails.  Life will be good!
