  14. Oh you're so lucky & I'm so jealous! They're gorgeous... I think Spring has forgotten about us here in Southeast Missouri, USA! It was warmer over the weekend, but the temp has dropped yet again & it's COLD! I'm so longing & wishing for springtime! I miss the flowers & blooms & the smell of fresh cut green grass!
