Snow Globes Then Spring

A real snow globe - nothing fake
Do you love snow globes, those transparent round spheres that just like magic, one quick shake and it's a winter wonderland? Snow globes have always been a bit mesmerizing but this recent #blizzardof2015, at least for those of us folks living in Massachusetts, well, we were living the real thing. But rather than showing images of snow piles reaching higher than 8 feet, let’s take a glimpse past snow globes and snow piles and take a peek at spring. Here are a few of my favorite ‘firsts’ of that magical season. 

And if you need a real touch of spring in winter, check out your local botanical garden for some wonderful winter experiences that simulate the spring. For those that live in Central Massachusetts/Worcester County, where the snow counts were monumental, check out Tower Hill. It’s one of the best kept secrets in this area, especially in the dead of winter. Take a peek at the website and watch spring unfold before your eyes. And for those that missed out on the beauty of yesterday, Susan Orlean sums it up best. “A snow day literally and figuratively falls from the sky, unbidden, and seems like a thing of wonder.” But most of us prefer the spring!
Most of us prefer the spring. And don't forget to think DESIGN in the dead of winter!
