Windowsill In Winter

Saturday, February 1, 2020

Rosemary and her friends - Pepper, Marj, Reggie and Al are wintering over in the kitchen this year. They love this southwest facing window during the daytime. They look out and chat about the birds who come to hop around and nibble at the feeders. They watch the wind when it blows, the rain and the snow when it falls and they dream of springtime.

Truth be told, they’re spoiled now - being indoors. Every Sunday they go to the spa for a soothing chat with mom as she bathes them and they drink deep of clean warm water. It’s a good life if you can get it.

They know the days are getting longer and even though it’s just barely February their talk turns to the smell of earth warming in the sun. There is hope.

And… there is mom, sipping her tea, thumbing through seed catalogs!
