Is time standing still?

    Every night the darkness is getting later and later, but it still feels like we aren't getting anywhere!  We were spoiled late into the Fall this year, and then that was suddenly stolen from us.  Its been bitterly cold ever since.  We got a taste of Spring a few weeks ago, with temperatures in the upper 50's.  But like a flash, it was gone, and we are are in this rut we call midwest Winter. 
    Every year I wonder to myself why I live in this part of the world, but I am convinced why every Spring when the outdoors come to life, and show us "why".  I guess I can say it's worth the wait, but boy how the "wait" seems longer and longer every year.  Every year my anticipation grows because of the new things I "hide" under the ground!  This year is especially exciting, many hidden treasures will be unearthed as they grow into beautiful specimens for me, and you to enjoy!!! 
    Remember to try and make a trip out to see my little projects in actions, and suggest new things for me to conquer.  I LOVE a challenge.  Hopefully, a new Koi pond will be going in this year, loaded with fish and many water plants.  FYI...I am smiling right now just thinking about it!  Thanks for reading this, I sometimes like to ramble a bit.
