Somewhere in Mobjack, 2010.

Partially because I haven't had time to take photos lately, 

View from the Road, Mobjack, 2010

but mostly because I am officially tired of the scarcity of color and life this time of year,

Corn Field Near Glenns, July 2010

I am sharing some old photos that feature the color green.

Public Landing, Onemo, 2010

I can't wait for warm weather.

Hoping to find some words of wisdom to support my lack of enthusiasm for winter, I happened instead upon a few quotes which give good reasons to appreciate this time of year.  

There is a privacy about it which no other season gives you.... In spring, summer and fall people sort of have an open season on each other; only in the winter, in the country, can you have longer, quiet stretches when you can savor belonging to yourself.  
~Ruth Stout

I like these cold, gray winter days.  Days like these let you savor a bad mood.  
~Bill Watterson

The color of springtime is in the flowers, the color of winter is in the imagination.  
~Terri Guillemets

OK, fine. Pardon me while I spend the next few months savoring my bad mood. And hurry up, Spring!
~Chesapeake Bay Woman

I read somewhere that this is the most depressing week of the year. I have to agree to the depression and to the bad mood. It has been a long winter and we've got months to go...wonder what we will be like in March?
Enjoyed the quotes, especially yours:)
Thanks for the green!

Sorry, but I'm happy. And I loved one of those quotes but I forget which one.
Cheer up, CBW, just think, this week won't be back for a whole year. Of course, it'll sneak up on you then, too, but wot the h... you'll have had a year to forget about it.

I like the one about the bad mood seeing as how I'm in one. It's a constant state of bad moodedness. It seems to be a perpetual state. At least until Blogfest maybe. Here's another winter quote "Now is the winter of our [my] discontent"

And someone, please, start up the lawn mower, there is major drama going on up this way...

Savoring a bad mood . . . that just fits with the season!

I hope you aren't savoring a bad mood and are having a wonderful day!
