I know what you mean when you describe "garden shows". We have one in Allentown every year, and every year there are more and more vendors and less flowers and gardens. I've been wanting to go the Philadelphia flower and garden show, just doesn't seem to work out. Maybe next year.

Up this way there is also an Ice Carving show in February. It's been really good the last few years I've gone. This year though, we had a warm-up in February and it hit 70 degrees! The show actually had to close down early because the ice displays were melting.

This has been a crazy winter. We still have 5 foot drifts at the edge of our driveway. If we don't start getting some steady warmer weather soon, some of this white stuff will still be around in early May!

Go to Longwood, it's always spring inside!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

YES, we need to go to Longwood. I've never been but hear it's great. And next year in Philadelphia, god willing.

Jane, don't joke. I remember my dad telling me of snow on June 1 in Johnstown PA, somewhere back around 1920. *argh!!!!* Still below freezing at night here, so the ground is frosty until noon. No snow here; we were lucky in that.
The end is nothing, the journey is all.
