My idea of a perfect January morning: a dreamy sunrise, coffee with milk and cd's by Norwegian singer Rebekka Bakken playing in the background. http://www.rebekkabakken.com/
In the garden the frost lingers on but the layers of December snow have disappeared. My youngest son and I check the flower beds frequently to see if any of the bulbs we planted last fall are poking their heads up yet. Less than we can count on our fingers. Sleep on, sweet tulips; the birds may be chirping but snowflakes are still dancing in the air.
