doodle by andre: a worm’s eye view of winter

AMEN. Let’s hear a chorus of it: AMEN! (Thanks, Andre Jordan, for another of your delightful doodles.) A lot of “inside contemplating” going on over here.

  1. Angie says:

    Amen indeed! Here in the South it was so crazy with all the snow that even the people who were excited about it initially, later said enough! But Spring is finally starting to show.

  2. Laura Biegger says:

    Amen, amen, amen! Even though our winter has been much more bearable than several previous years (and better than yours, Margaret) we are ready for spring! Warmer weather coming in the next 24 hours.

  3. Kiel Fergen says:

    Amen! Two days ago, for the first time this year the temperature was rising. The snow melted and my heart began to fill up with hope and faith that spring was coming. Then I woke up this morning and saw that it snowed more than ever before. Spring is coming, that’s for sure, but it is also sure that a last snowfall comes before it happens. However, what is nice to think of is that when spring arives and we hear the sound of birdsong and the smell of the plants growing, it’s a wonderful feeling:)

    Poor Andre.

    I keep trying to visualize my February Gold forcing the tips of their blossoms up through frozen dirt and 10 feet of piled snowbank to explode, on schedule in two weeks when somehow winter will end and spring will appear. Also thinking about lawnmower shopping. Meanwhile, your drawing expresses the thoughts of my Jack Russell nearly perfectly.

    Hi Margaret,

    I am really loving this doodle! I am wondering if I would be allowed to share it on my facebook? I don’t want to just post it/copy it on there without asking for permission. Please let me know :)

    Thank you for sharing your wealth of gardening knowledge and your beautiful website!

    Amen! We were having nice warm days with a touch of spring here in DK, but now the forecast says snow! Not to fond of the idea of snow again :-|

    It’s either feast or famine. My furnace died 2 weeks ago at 3 a.m. on a Sunday, when it was minus 15 degrees, with a worse wind chill, and today I am dragging out the hoses to keep the new evergreens alive.

    Yes it is a skating rink here too in Farmington, CT. So its difficult to do anything in the garden. This winter already seems very long, although December was warmer than average. Today snow on top of the ice.
