    1. Me too but I see signs those lovely scents are coming our way. Outside our windows are two trees with pink buds which make staying inside easier to bear.


      1. Wow! I don’t think I could cope in a climate where winter lasts so long! We have a lot of wild plum and cherry here and the blossom has all fallen except on one tree. A late developer 🙂

  1. Eugenia,

    I don’t know about pink haloing the trees but I did spy a red bud in our backyard beginning to show. I haven’t been out except to get the mail or take the trash to the curb for the past couple of weeks so I’m not sure what the great big world behind my yard holds. I will get a break today as I venture out to see my neurologist. 🙂 Be safe and healthy, my dear. xx

    1. There is a tree outside our balcony that is covered in pink buds. In a couple of days, it will be glorious. I’ll try to get a decent photo with my phone. I don’t have a big girl camera! 😄 Stay safe and well.
