Spring is upon us–less than 3 weeks away–but you’d never know it here in Rhode Island. My friend Kim aka Carolina Purl was gloating today about blooming Bradford pear trees, highs of 79 degrees, and wearing sandals to work (guess where she lives–hint: not New England). Oh yeah? Well I’m wearing two sweaters, long johns, and wool socks! This is what the weather here is like, and it just started flurrying. Anyway, I’m keeping myself sane by looking through garden catalogs and making to do lists for spring.
