A Snow Haiku

The snow is falling
Children playing in the snow
Marvelous snowfall

Well, the snow (and snow days) might make my daughter want to wax poetic, but it’s starting to make me twitchy. I am starting to think about trips to the lake, sitting on the deck at the cabin, swimming in Buffalo Creek (Okla.) and enjoying a warm evening breeze as I sit on my front porch swing with a glass of Coke and a magazine.

So, for all of us that are longing for the days when we complained about the heat and humidity, I thought I’d share some pictures I shot in July 2010, at Botanica Gardens, Wichita. I hope it makes shoveling the driveway a bit easier later today…
