With the past history of my writings this post title could refer to something totally different, and I say that indignantly and could cite a few posts and web addresses here. But I won't go there, not here, not now.
Spring officially starts tomorrow. Yay! That means warmer weather prompting those rising windows. That means spring-cleaning, which includes washing the bleak winter's dirt from the outside of those windows. That means tidying up the gardens underneath those clean opened windows. But as I look out these muck ridden windows, I can see the ground is lightly dusted with a layering of snow and those white ice crystals that descend from above have started again. I despairingly watch with a stoic face (Would that be considered an oxymoron?)
The lesson learned here -- Never trust a marmot, especially one that emerges from a hole in the ground, or would that be a snake? Either way!
