Sunshine, no coats, soaring mercury, no boots, flowers in bloom, no hats and gloves, monarch butterflies gathering nectar, no twice daily application of body lotion to stop the dry skin itching. Yes, it’s the time of year when I whine about the weather and dream of summertime. Ahhhh, summertime – my favourite time of the year :).
As I haven’t really had any recent photo ops (maybe because I hate with a passion going out in the cold), I decided to dig into the archives and find one of my best warm weather photos to share with you. Just looking at this butterfly perched on an echinacea flower makes me forget the yucky white stuff outside the window. Hopefully the weatherman is right and we will be into the double digits by the weekend. I know it won’t last long and it’s still a long time until Spring in my part of the world, but some above normal temperatures and some sunshine would be very good for my soul right about now.
