The snow was falling.
The weatherman was announcing that winter would be extended in Canadaland several + + + more weeks.
I bought spring.
And the clerk, whose palm I crossed with loonies and toonies, folded it in green tissue.
Wrapped it in cellophane.
Tied it with a yellow ribbon.
And slid it over the counter.
I grabbed spring and ran.
That’s what we Northern Girls do when we’re hanging by our last winter nerve.
You would have done the same.
I know it.
Hump Day. Spring right over it.
Note: These clicks were totally experimental. I wanted to see if I could get the completely wrapped tulips through the cellophane. They remind me ever so much of watercolor, which is one of my favorite art mediums.

What a great idea Elen, the flowers look beautiful.
Thank you so much, Leanne. I appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment. And now I just have to wait for those little buds to open!
Humpy Hap Day to you, too, Elen. A friend mused that she doesn’t know what to wish for as far as the end of the winter – a quick all in one go thaw and flood, or the slow receding of the pile of snow – which means June before we see green. Ah well. Enjoy your day!
As much as I want spring, Maggie, I’ll take the slow receding of the pile of snow. June it is! lol Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment.
Awesome title! Tulips are gorgeous. I loved this entire post. I’m going to go buy some spring now, too. 😀
Thanks, Diana. I’m glad you enjoyed it. The tulips are just starting to open, and my eyes are glued to them as it continues to flurry outside. We’re going to have some 30+ Fahren days. I’m pretty excited. LOL Yes! Go buy some spring.
I like these photos a great deal. And I have been subsisting for these last several months on cut flowers . . .
Thank you, Daniel! I hear you. The first spring tell in my yard is winter aconite. It’s buried deep. It may not surface until June!
