Is winter having a temper tantrum?

This is Garden Week in Virginia.   For two weeks the state shines with gardens as the focus.  It is the right of passage that indicates spring is here.  Rain usually graces a day or two of Garden Week but warmer weather and sunshine are also part of the usual package.  Winter is not. Snow, freezing temperatures and generally cloudy days are not helping with the suggestion that it is spring.  I see glimpses.  The daffodils and crocuses are trying to show their colorful presences.  It feels like winter is simply unwilling to relinquish its grip – it is having a temper tantum saying NO, NO, NO, I will not go.  In light of this I have several reactions:

  1. beach pictures on Pinterest
  2. stalk the hot houses of the garden shops
  3. make a dinner of picnic food and spread a blanket out on the den floor for your “table”
  4. create a play list of summer songs

Suggestions?
