Dear Mother Nature,

I just wanted to remind you that it is only a week until the official start of Spring.


It really doesn't look very Spring-y here.


There's an awful lot of snow still on the ground.


And more in the forecast? You've got to be kidding!

We turned out clocks ahead this weekend, Mother Nature. That should be a wake-up call for you. Or have you, perhaps, forgotten about us way up here?

I've been keeping myself busy inside for the past few months.


But I really want to spend some time outside, in the sunshine.


If you're not going to cooperate, I guess I will just have to pretend. I will bring out the Spring colours, paint my toenails, and look at other bloggers' photographs of green grass and flowers blooming.


But, seriously Mother Nature. It's time. Truly it is.

Love,
Rachel

That quilt top looks fantastic! You'll laugh when you see what I'm working on -- I'm sort of stalled though -- I wish I liked mine as much as I like yours!

Wow, you really do have lots of snow. I hope Mother Nature receives your message and acts accordingly :O)

I LOVE IT, Rachel! not the snow, the quilt top! that's it. I'm shopping for a jelly roll (or 2) and I'm going to make my postage stamp quilt.

But your snow looks so clean! Down here it turns to grey sludgey messy crap almost instantly! Yuck! I love your quilt so bright and sunny, and all those littel squares - you are motoring!
