The temperature here in Illinois hit a balmy 39 degrees today and the sun was shining all day, so no complaints here! Any 'warm' spell we get in January that helps melt the 12-plus inches of snow on the ground .....well, I'm all for it! All this sunshine and snow melting makes me feel like spring is closer than it really is. On that note, I feel the need to reminisce and post some of my favorite flower pics that put me in the gardening mood!
and then there's Mollie...my beloved 'garden helper'.
