The meteorologists keep telling those of us in the south central part of the country, that a mild winter was predicted. And so far it has been. But as always in Arkansas, the temps and weather patterns change within a 24 hour period. It can really wreak havoc with your allergies and attitude. Monday we had snow and sleet in the state.
The predictions are that the temps in the next few days will be in the 60s. I've been "holed up" in the house for so long, I am having trouble getting out when the weather is nice.
Some of my jonquils began blooming, but the cold snap really did a number on them, so I haven't taken any photos. I'm hoping the ones that haven't opened up yet, will do so in the warmer days ahead and I can get a nice shot of some of them. I planted some iris plants three weeks ago, but they look rather sad right now. I should have done it in November, but just couldn't get to it. They came from my Mom's yard and I couldn't get to Rison to dig them up. I know next year they will be wonderful though. That's sure something to look forward to.
So, while we wait for spring proper, I'll have to be content to looking at the drooping jonquils and dreary skies. To every thing there is a season, and a purpose under heaven....
