I live in one of those earthly locations the travel mags like to call “a 4 season destination”.  Which is all well and good up until about, well, now.  I’ve gotten my fix of snowboarding (great year!) and am now wishing for a heavy dose of sun rays.

Problem is, the snow is layered up deep and melting slowly.  If you’re like me, your backyard may still resemble the above pic.  But, hey, long as I’ve been alive spring has never failed to come, so here’s to waiting.
