Last days of winter
Last days for gray winter skies,
last days for cold frosty mornings,
last days for cool-weather vegetables,
last days for sleepy owls seeking shelter from north winds,
last days for hot apple cider,
last days for warm coats, fuzzy hats and gloves.
I'm enjoying it while it lasts! When temperatures hit triple digits and everything's wilting this summer, what winter joys will you miss most?
