    Tired of winter, I titled this 'Hoping for Spring.' Do you think we have to wait another whole month??

    That is beautiful! You may be waiting another month, but I'll be waiting at least 3 before I see any of crocuses pop up in my yard. We had minus 8 this morning before we left for church. I was glad to see that the welcome sunshine put us up 18 degrees by the time we got home.

    What size is your work of art and how did you do the flowers?

    My goodness, the picture is so realistic, while it was slowly loading I thought it was of a flower garden! Really beautiful! And the Raleigh area IS so lovely in the spring.

    But one more month? I'm betting for us it'll be more like 7-8 weeks. Yet reading your post did make me have a rethink of how quickly Dec/Jan have passed and how soon the bone-chilling cold *will* be over. One can stand anything for less than 2 months, surely!

    You work is beautiful and left me hopeful that Spring will arrive. We have well over 2 feet on the ground and another bid Nor'easter on the way. :-(

    Very pretty, your flower looks spring like and looks real. Something we could see in the winter but not this year, our winter here in Florida hasn't been kind to us, cold!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is beautiful, I'm in southern Kentucky, hoping for only one month more of this awful winter. And I have lived in Maine and Michigan so know they've got a while to go yet.

    Very pretty. I'm not in any hurry for spring to come because I know the hot summer will follow. I hate hot weather more than I hate the cold.

    Amen! I can always put another quilt on or boost up the heat. But you can only take off so much before they call the cops!
