If Wishes Were Flowers

 
If wishes were flowers it would be springtime.

My mother's standard way of letting me know that children do not always get what they want was to tell me "If wishes were horses, beggars would ride."

I can hardly believe it was a week ago I was enjoying early spring with Ester, and now I'm back in winter. Here are some pretties from her yard. And I'm wishing for some here. However, I'm pretty sure I'll get my wish before too much longer.

Snowdrops

And winter aconite

Sigh... back to work tomorrow morning, and tax appointment in the afternoon. I got two of the three Dubois Files books all formatted. I won't get the third one done tomorrow, but maybe by the end of Thursday. Not too far off my goal.

I'm wishing for the same thing. I'm getting very tired of snow.

I LOVE snowdrops! Mine are in full bloom in the front of the house...crocus in the back.

I'm not complaining...we've had constant sunshine for a week now. I can deal with cold as long as the sun is shining.

Beautiful! Haven't seen those "harbingers of Spring" here yet, but we are hopeful!

Love those late winter beauties in bloom.
