a little sun

I’ve not posted in a while because I’m been in a mid-winter funk. The ground’s covered with snow, the weather forecasts call for more snow, and I can’t remember the last time I saw the sun. We’re still weeks away from the annual Plain Dealer articles about winter depression and the disappearance of the sun.
Well, today brought a little sun out. While I was not born with a sports gene, I do have a love for Chicago sports teams. It’s more an emotional thing than knowing player names and statistics. That’s why the internet was invented. The BEARS won. Something about orange and blue brings back all those memories of futility interspersed with the occasional “Wow.” I’m not sure what part of history today is, but it was an enjoyable interlude from the depressing gray dullness of a Cleveland winter. Being a Bears fan only goes so far because next week, in addition to the Bears-Packers game, is the first of two Cleveland Garden shows. As you know, you can never go to too many garden shows.

For you Chicago Bears fans, a musical interlude. For any Seattle Seahawk fans, sorry.

Jim, my husband has spent the whole day in the basement with football. My nephew arrived at the Bear's parking lot at 6:45 a.m. this morning according to facebook. Start showing some of your gorgeous hostas, I need to learn the names!

I know exactly how you feel Jim. It has also been miserable and grey here for weeks now. Never mind Spring is just around the corner.

The Cleveland garden show will be such a welcome break for you. Take lots of pictures for us winter flower starved gardeners south of you. LOL!
