I'm reminded of Tweety-Bird. "I thought I saw a putty-cat! I did! I did!" In this case, I thought I did a post for today. Alas, with everything going on around here, I goofed. Please accept my apologies.

Since spring is a few days away, I thought I'd update you on the state of the flowers and trees. I've seen crocuses in bloom and daffodils budding. Although I don't see evidence the trees are awakening from their winter sleep, my allergies tell me they will soon make their presence known.

My writing's been asleep all winter. Okay, I've done some, but not as much as I'd hoped. The temptation to curl up with a good book and forego time on my WIP proved rather strong. It's time to dust off the cobwebs and do some spring cleaning on my manuscript.

What season of the year is your most productive writing time and why?

I believe my least productive time of the year is right now. The end of the winter,change to daylight savings time, the temperature changing constantly. I have done a bit of research in spite of my doldrums.

Winter has me feeling lethargic. It's my eating season :)

Something tells me you'll be writing up a whirlwind as spring progresses.

Hi Quiet Spirit -

I feel most productive and alive in the spring and fall. The temperature extremes of winter and summer don't sit well with me.

Hi Kathleen -

I sure hope you're right! I'm working on a new project and have a self-imposed deadline for mid-summer.

So glad you have seen some beautiful flowers. My productive time is anytime I have a great idea. Any season will do.

I have to go with summer because there are less holidays to plan for. Do you garden? I would love to see some pictures!

Hi Nancy -

It's great that the weather doesn't affect you.

Mom and I were out yesterday, and I noticed the trees are budding! We had 70 degree temperatures today. :)

Hi Alisa -

I make a valiant attempt at gardening, but I'm not very good at it.

This year, I plan to grow less veggies in the tiny 4 X 4 plot. Perhaps I'll avoid the jungle I ended up with last year.

I'll see about taking pictures as the season starts and then progresses. Hopefully, the groundhog and insects will dine elsewhere this year.

Susan :)
