Shall Winter Reappear?

Finally - that extra day in February that leaps upon us every fourth year. Plus, if you pay attention to the Google Doodles, it’s also the 220th birthday celebration of the Italian composer, Gioachino Rossini. Therefore, a simple quote from the musical guru seems most appropriate to keep our creative garden wheels in motion.  “Give me a laundry-list and I'll set it to music.”

So what are you waiting for? Use this extra day to tackle those last-minute winter garden chores. Pruning is one so sharpen those shears and by golly, place your seed order or there won't be any veggie garden this year. To set the scene, it’s the musical backdrop for your listening pleasure: The Barber of Seville - Overture YouTube link to soothe the ears while chipping away at the final, ‘end of the winter’ laundry list. Are you wondering if spring is really in the air?  

P.S. Didn't have a chance to put into motion my earlier suggestion for this extra day in February? Revisit the post. It’s not too late to take advantage of the Leap Year. Let the music play and be creative while winter reappears.
