This winter in Central Illinois has certainly been strange to say the least and one for the records – literally. We have had a record small amount of moisture (snow) and if I am not mistaken, February has been one of the warmest since records have been kept. And lots of sickness. Colds, flu, fevers, aches and pain. I was not spared. In fact, I just finished my second round of antibiotics to get rid of a nasty sinus infection that followed an equally nasty bout of asthmatic bronchitis. But for the past week I have had a good kind of fever – Spring Fever!! Last Saturday afternoon I worked outside in shorts and a sleeveless top and actually got sunburned! And what was I outside doing? Thinking of flowers of course!
Fall is my favorite season. Even though I know what follows – winter – I can’t help but be energized and inspired by the beauty of fall.
I love fall. The brilliant, vibrant colors, the cool, crisp nip in the air and fall decorating. A couple of weeks ago, I spent some time outside getting ready for fall. Enjoy!
