52 Week Photo Challenge – Week 11 – Green

52_weeks_green

I live in Minnesota. Yes, the calendar says it’s Spring. However, Mother Nature doesn’t go by the calendar around here.  When Punxatawney Phil comes out of his den on February 2 (Groundhog Day), everyone anxiously awaits whether there will be  six more weeks of  winter. Except Minnesotans. We all know there is ALWAYS at least six more weeks of winter. And then some.

When I left for work this morning, it was only 17 degrees outside. We do not have ANY green grass, buds on trees, leaves, etc. Nothing starts greening up around here until at least late April/early May. MAYBE. Yes, we have loooong winters.  I maybe should’ve put Green toward the middle of the calendar as far as my challenge goes.

My sidekick and I were out and about on Saturday and we came across this cute antique sign in an antique store. It’s green, so I went with it. Makes me want to start a garden.

Looking forward to Spring pics this week.  If I can find it anywhere….

Have a great week!
