The Fickle Month of March

If not for a very small child in my care today, I would have gone out for a walk in the wonderfully warm weather; it was around 60 degrees! Instead I stayed in, read books to Troy, baked some yummy chocolate chip cookies, and held a bottle for a hungry Lucas. I did, however, step outside into the balmy temperatures this afternoon to take a look around the yard and to call my three-legged dog who has once again gone missing. I let her out this morning and she hasn't returned. (She is nothing short of annoying!) Our backyard "lake" is draining nicely. I don't think the ducks will be moving in this year. I found some flowers beginning to sprout in my gardens. The crocuses are pushing their way up into the sunshine and so are these little snowdrops. I guess spring is on it's way afterall!


  1. Hooray! I just knew your turn for a sneak preview of spring would be getting there soon!

  2. Wow! That's great. No flowers here yet. ...

  3. Blast! You got them on line first!
    I got pictures of some daphodillies yesterday, and was going to post them but got home with the Grands late and had dinner to do. I will get them up soon. Darn that dog, but now we know it's not the Hispanic workers. Sigh. It's good to hear the lake is receeding nicely. maybe no ugly smell if it drys up before the really warm weather. :)

  4. I should go check out my flowers!

    I hope Jazz comes back soon!

  5. oh man, I am so glad you shared that picture!
    Come ON, spring!!!
    Our gardens are a nightmare. The previous owner just could not keep them up and we are slowing recovering them, but bit-by-bit.
    I will have to remember to plant some crocus, they are so good about promising spring!
