See the pile of snow in the picture below? Look carefully and see if you can see little branches poking out of the top of it? I am very worried about this particular pile of snow because under it is my Purple Sand Cherry tree that I searched and searched for last spring. And then, patiently, waited for it to go on clearance before I purchased it. Someone, who very lovingly, shoveled the driveway a gazillion times this winter thoughtfully buried my favorite $25.00 tree.
I love seeing a perfectly cleared driveway. And Mr Sun finally pulled it off for me. It must be sad when you are even excited to see the concrete under the snow, huh? And even sadder is taking a picture of it :)
This is the one magical spot of ground that we can now see. I must divulge that pretty much every yard in MA has this magical spot in their yard this time of year because it is the spot over the septic system. The first spot to melt :)
Next week is Winter Break in New England, an idea I am still getting used too. If I had money to go to someplace warm I could totally see the point of winter break. But at this point I am still contemplating the point of it all and what my attitude will be. :) The kids have been telling me it is supposed to snow next week and they are planning an epic snowball fight with all their friends....a gazillion kids tracking snow into my house sounds super fun. :)
