Our darling Cavaliers are a ray of sunshine on a gray and gloomy morning in Savannah. There is much to recommend living in Coastal Georgia, unless you have a string of cold and gloomy days. But my little spaniels remind me that there is much joy to be found indoors on such days.
You may want to get caught up on laundry, but they beg to play ball. So you stop and toss the ball and revel in the simple joy of watching the satisfaction of a job retrieving well done.
I just wrote a new article for my gardening column in a local publication, recommending looking for color in your Winter garden. I explored our Island on a gray chill day, and I did find a few colorful spots. I would like to see more. Especially during the camellia season!
Even downtown on some of the pretty streets in Savannah, there are spots of color that brighten a gloomy day.
While I write this post, I am looking out my study window to a hanging basket of bright yellow pansies with a background of spikey foxtail ferns. Just the sight to brighten a day! Here is wishing for many sunny days in 2019, and happiness even on the gray days!
