Still dreamin’

Here’s another can’t-wait-for-spring post to go with my first one.  Today in the Chicago area, the high is predicted to be 3 degrees Fahrenheit and the low 9 below.  If we have wind, it will be worse.  Ahhh, well, we’re almost at the end of February, which means April isn’t too far away.

Enjoy the color and keep dreamin’.

    Yikes… and I thought it was cold here!

  2. At least the frog brightens your otherwise cold day.

  3. Sue says:

    -12 here this morning. I just want to crawl under my cozy covers and not come out till May!

  4. Holy cow… I can’t even imagine what negative degrees would feel like at this point. I’m ashamed to admit it as a born and bred east coaster, but after spending so much time in California and Hawaii, I was shivering ferociously when the temperatures dropped down to 50 degrees last night!

    • At least the sun’s out. It would be much worse if it were cloudy but would be much better if the wind would stop. We’re up to 0 now and only -20 with wind chill. 🙂


  5. Interesting piece…

    I can’t imagine the cold where you are. It’s bad enough here with the wind chill of 30s-40s.
    And tonight it will be worse.

    • Randy, I won’t take the opportunity to mock all of you Southerners and Floridians for your thin blood. I hope it doesn’t get too bad, not just for you, but for the citrus fruit and other plants. Other than the “cold”, I hope you’re doing well. I’m working my way towards your FF piece, so beware. 🙂

    Thanks for the eye popping colours. Hope you have a great day ahead, Janet. 🙂

  7. Brrr … I thought our 32 degrees last night was super cold. I haven’t been in cold NY since 1989.
    Florida isn’t supposed to be cold. I am feeling sad for my orchids. I had them covered with old sheets to keep the wind off of them.😳
    Artic cold making it’s way down here is very unusual. I’m happy I don’t have to go outdoors. 😀
    Your colorful frog does shout Spring …. 😁

    • I’ve featured flowers and designs by this group at this mall before. I just kept taking photos because everything was so beautifully done. 32 IS cold for Florida! Hopefully your weekend will be closer to normal!


  8. I saved this to look at again and again. The colors are a reminder and marvelous in themselves. Thank you for eye candy!
