Waiting Out Winter

Shabby Chic Creamer, The Charm of Home

I am now officially waiting out winter.  I have been patient.  I have enjoyed the snow.... a little.  We had a somewhat white Christmas, but now I am ready for some beautiful blooms and some sunshine. 

Shabby Chic Creamer, The Charm of Home I was looking longingly at the roses today at the grocery.   So, for today I am pulling out my faux peonies.  I really am missing my roses and that warm sun. How are you holding out this winter?

I love every season & so far I've handled the extreme cold fairly well. but I do have a nice warm fire, lots of hot tea, my dogs & my sweetheart plus lots of green, growing plants and blooms inside while I enjoy the views outside. I don't mind being snowed in for awhile longer.

Roses are my very favourite.It's a shame we can't have their gorgeous blooms all year. Mine have suffered a little with the recent heat wave,but I am nursing them back and they are starting to reward me with some pretty blooms. Love your little jug x

Good Evening Sherry, I also long for Spring and the colors of green.
We have had the windiest winter ever, and oh so dry.
The plains have their own kind of beauty.
Have a lovely week!
Blessings, Roxy

Not liking this winter at all! I've had enough! It seems to be one of the coldest winters I can remember. I am ready for spring, too!

I smiled, Sherry...this is almost the end of my patience, too. And I am getting some flowers soon, even if I have to have them delivered! :)

The flowers are beautiful. I'm ready for Spring. Our Midwest winter is fierce.

Like Jenny, I love each season. However, I'm growing a little tired of winter about now! I hear February in Missouri may be a lot like January so when I see beautiful photos of flowers, I really appreciate them! Missing my garden too! Stay warm!

I am with you! Ready for spring

Kim said...

Sherry, I am done with winter, too! The snow keeps falling and the temperature keeps dropping. I am so looking forward to spring! :)

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

Well we are looking forward to wind chills of thirty below tonight and Tuesday so what do YOU think :) :) :)

Not liking to wish the days away, but it sure would be nice if winter would turn milder now and ease up on us. Sunny today, but really cold. Can't wait for spring!

Heaven's Walk said...

Ok...hang on. There is whining and ranting and complaining ahead: I am over this winter. So sick and tired of it. So depressed at all the snow, sub-zero temps, drifting roads huge snowbanks, and lack of sunshine. It is a brutal winter. Relentless and horrible. I haven't been able to get out to buy groceries OR buy my weekly roses. I'm in withdrawal. lol I either need to move south...or just bury my head in the snow and wait for spring. lol

Brrr...8 degrees here this am! I like winter but hate hearing that heater kick on - ugh!

Love the shot of the peonies - reminds me that I have a few in a box somewhere. I bought faded roses this week at the market for $1.99!
Woo Hoo!

Stay warm!

If you hadn't said...I would have thought that you had fresh flowers in your vignette. [sigh] It's only January and I think this has been the longest winter every. LOL!! The cold and snow certainly cramp my style. The upside....we has spring, summer, and fall to look forward to and I love each of those season so very much. :)

Stay warm Sherry!!!!

p.s. Thanks for sharing your post Project Inspire{d} :)
