Wednesday’s Words

Is there such a thing as ‘Mid-Winter’.  We all know about Mid-Summer in early August, but what do we call the beginning of February?  The sun has been shining the last couple of days, and we’ve enjoyed the relief from the rain and gloom that is normal at this time of year.  We must be about half-way through winter and Spring must be just around the corner – mustn’t it!?!
A friend brought these beauties round the other day – a sure sign of Spring if I’ve ever seen one!

So my words today:             Happy Mid-Winter!
Blessings, Peg


  1. Happy mid-winter to you. Still dull and grey here, although we're having a little warm spell with temperatures above 0. A few of those lovely tulips would brighten things...I think a stop at the Superstore is in order!

  2. I am so trying to out shine the cloudy days but they are getting on everyone's last nerve. It rained sideways and wind blew all night long but no snow. Something to be thankful for. Staying busy with all my little fun things. Reduced the size of my quilt I am working on. I had bit off more than I could chew (sew).

  3. I have survived the first half and let's hope the second half goes by quickly.

  4. I like mid-winter as it sounds like the end is in sight although I can't complain we have had it quite mild here. Quite a bit of sun the last few days; a lot of birds and my yellow primulas are blooming. The trees have a lot of buds coming too so spring is definitely around the corner.

  5. Yes there is a mid-winter. The Old Ways call it Imbolc and it is, like mid-summer, a cross-quarter of the season at hand. Winter is half over and Spring is preparing to unfold the beauty of renewal. The tulips are gorgeous. Definitely a sure sign that Spring is about to spring!
