Hope is the thing with green, poking out of the ground

Well, thank you all. You sure know how to make a girl feel good with your enthusiastic comments. I got a few really nice surprises in the mix, and was SO GLAD to hear from each and every one of you commenters.

I am still wondering who the OTHER 850 or so people are, especially the person at pentagon.mil (seriously!), but it’s okay if you just want to whisper it in my ear sometime. Maybe you were just checking out Henry as a weapon of mass destruction?

Theme Thursday’s theme for today is WINTER, and between my lack of great affection for the coldest season of the year and the fact that it doesn’t snow much in my part of the world, I don’t have much to show you for snowy pictures.

Instead, I have this, which is the greatest gift I can give to you on this oh so chilly day: HOPE.


I took this photo in my yard on February 11, 2006. Spring really can’t be that far away.

For some more interpretations of winter, head to Theme Thursday at Stacy’s!

    We, too, don’t get much winter. So that’s very familiar to us right now.

    Dude, that’s a LOT of readers. Maybe they’re shy? 🙂

    I wonder the same thing. Last week, one day I got 900 and something hits, but 35 ish comments? Like who are all these other people? Please say hi!

    HI ANNA!!!! I have been so busy catching up and have so TOTALLY got to do you!!!! But before I do…..I remember the daffodils and jonquils making their appearances in the UK every late Jan/early Feb. They just popped up anywhere! It is completely magical! Nice shot although perhaps ‘Spring’ would have been a better title ;-D

    WOW 850 people! That is awesome! I am lucky to get 30 people a day!! Keep on blogging! I am back from FL! Yeah!! Now i have to read up on what everyone has been doing!!

  7. Stacy Says:

    Wow, you do get a lot of hits!

    Well, that picture would never happen around in here in early February. Maybe early April if we are really, really lucky! Lovely shot and definitely has some hopefulness to it. 🙂

  8. Maggie Says:

    I promise that it is not me at the pentagon. Just in case there was any doubt….

    I love that shot – and I can’t believe that it was taken in February! I don’t think it gets warm enough for anything to bloom until the end of March…and usually April!

  9. megan Says:

    that definitely gives me hope — spring cannot come too soon!

  10. Maya Says:

    A hint of spring…come soon please!!! You’re being watched by the pentagon!

  11. sara Says:

    I’m with you there, spring, bring it on. it’s supposed to be 9 degrees here saturday, thats the high!

  12. Beth Says:

    You’ll have to share this photo again when they bloom 🙂 How fun!

  13. Kim Says:

    So right you are! That’s exactly what I needed right now. Here it’s dreary and snowy, but not the nice fluffy flakes, the small annoying ones that sting when they hit your face. A little spring is good for the mood.

  14. JenBun Says:

    Daffodils are my favorite flowers… thanks for spreading the green love and hope! =)

  15. Erinne Says:

    Wow – do I see the colour green? Wonderful.

  16. Bonnie Says:

    I love this !! how cool !! Had to be creative with mine … it’s summer here … Winter?

  17. lori Says:

    Oh, it makes me so anxious to see some green here.

  18. Rosey Says:

    Cool picture. We already having that new growth here. What winter?

  19. Jenn Says:

    THANK YOU! I cant wait!!!

  20. christinator Says:

    Um, not to make you jelaous or anything, but we really don’t get much winter and it’s still pretty green around here. ;o)

    And dang, you are one popular chick! That’s about how many hits I get in a month.

  21. Stacy Says:

    That sure is a lot of people. How did they all find you? I clicked on your name in someone else’s comment box. Hi!!
