    Spring!

    I saw the first male robin today and the snow drops are up! The deer are scroungy looking as they are shedding their winter fur.
    Life may not be the party we planned for,but while we are here we should dance!

    Any birds around here are buried in the snow that is coming down to join the other 12" we never got rid of!

    Our deer are fat, across the street at the cemetary. They eat flowers,bagels and junk that the local kids feed them.
    Sooo ours sre on the chunky side. It seems everyone here feeds the guys.so ares are always chunky.

    We thought spring was here last week. There were a bunch of robins in the tree outside my kitchen window. HA! Mother Nature was just messing with us. We got 6 inches of snow last night. Which is good because I work in a school so I got a snow day:-)

    Our daffodils have been blooming for a few weeks, the robins never leave and the trees are starting to bud. Sorry ladies, but I miss snow and autumn colors - so it's a trade off.

    So its out there somewhere.... Here we just got 10 more fresh inches of snow but it is to be warmer this week so maybe it really is out there. Thanks for giving me hope of spring to come. :<)

    Spring is about 4-6 weeks away here. There was blizzard yesterday and it is about 10 degrees and it is snowing today. Everything is white. I have to admit, I'm really getting tired of white! Enjoy your spring weather!

    My crocuses are blooming and I dug up and divided some of my canna lily beds two weeks ago. I noticed several of the native desert willow trees have budded out and I have planted some new bulb beds (gladiolus, daffodil and hyacinths) in anticipation of spring.

    I'll know spring has arrived when the hummingbirds make an appearance on their way up from Mexico.

    I love the Southwest!
    Do not worry about the past, for it is history,
    Do not worry about the future, for it is a mystery,
    Only live for today, for it is a gift, that is why it is called "the present."

    glad spring is starting for the northerners but wish it would hold off a while in the south. Heat comes too quickly and stays too long>

    I am so ready for spring. Went to the Valley yesterday for an appointment, and all the trees down there are blooming and the daffodils are blooming and the wildflowers on the highway are beginning to show their heads. Won't be long now till I can quilt outdoors on the deck. YAY

    Long Island is under a Nor'easter watch right now. 8" expected so I'm hunkered down, cozy and hand quilting a lap throw. Life is good!

    So that is where all the Robins have gone, NORTH! Was so nice to see the thousands of them here during our winter. Still winter here, frost on everything this morning, still having to cover my citrus trees at night, they have flower buds on them. I am ready for a tad bit of spring weather.
