Winter, Please Go Away

I'm tired of snow that lasts all day and weeks later you can still see the evidence. I'm done with it! Let me hibernate until spring comes and this snow melts. I want to go outside and rake my hands through the dirt and make something of the garden.
Everytime I look outside I dream of it. I dream of string beans, sweet peppers, and beets. I dream of going to the farm to pick strawberries in June and blackberries in August. I dream of the harvest, the pickles, the jams that I will make. I dream of fresh local apples from my favorite orchard and their apple cider. I dream of picking wild raspberries off of the bushes and popping them into my mouth.
I just can't wait.
