Narcissus. In. January.

Much of the known world in the USA is in a deep freeze. My southern home in the states, Texas, is buried under the winter spell of ice. This is the fountain in our community. A friend posted this on FaceBook.

He aptly titled this photo, “Narnia.” The extremely cold weather is very unusual for Texas, and I am sorry to miss it. Rarely do I get to wear thick, warm woolen sweaters and read a book in my favorite chair, drink hot cocoa and sit by the fire at home. I love that cocooned feeling of snuggling in a comfortable house, set firm against the weather. It’s not often I can enjoy that experience in my own southern state.

But I have to tell you, even in mild Texas without all the freezing temperatures, I have to wait all winter until early spring for flowers like these…

We took a little outing last weekend to Ein Kerem and found them blooming on the roadside. Narcissus. In. January. Honestly, I miss a taste of the cold back at home; but if I had to choose, I’d pick these lovely flowers any day over Narnia’s icicles.
