I am not one to wish my life away, but I am counting the weeks until the end of February, because it is the hottest month of the year in my part of the world. The temperature soars, humidity is high and thunderstorms are our only hope of relief. However, I am certain that there are many other Real Toadians who have had enough of the Winter and are looking forward to the Spring of 2013. Whatever the weather, all are warmly greeted this Monday in the garden. Please link up a poem of your choice and spend some time reading and relaxing in our poetic environment.
