I’m a little obsessed with flowers lately.
In the same way someone in the desert
might crave a glass of water,
I guess it makes sense that someone
living in the frozen tundra
would crave any sign of warmth!
Tomorrow the high temperature
is going to be -4. That is just wrong.
But it certainly makes us
appreciate the other seasons
of the year.
I really think the flowers smell sweeter,
the trees look greener,
the sun is shinier
after you’ve lived through
the bitter cold of a Minnesota winter.
