SSW2 Sketch #43 and A Day for Daisies

Hi everyone!  It’s Sally as your hostess this week for the Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 team and I'm here in Massachusetts.  
I am excited for February as it brings us one month closer to Spring.  We have had over 3 feet of snow in the last week here in Southern Massachusetts.  My sister and her husband rode down to our Beach House on Cape Cod and snapped this picture of the water front.  I love the beauty of Winter, but am ready for warmer temps!!
