Do you see them? The little sprouts in the right corner are iris and crocus, the green bits on the upper left are columbine, and the green grey bits under the columbine are centura montana,
look at my drab brown lawn ... not much snow on it (except for the harbour ice at the end of the yard!) -- look across the harbour -- only a bit of snow and ice over there too! we might have seen the last of old man Winter!
looky, looky! not a bit of ice in the harbour! On the weekend there were ice chunks all over the place, and a week ago, it was frozen nearly the whole way across ... happy dance^^
the cherry tree is in the foreground ... lots of nice plump buds swelling on it already (also, because it makes me quite happy-- note the absence of snow in the neighbors yard --one little pile, that's all! )No matter how carefully I stepped, I still managed to squish down into the muck ... got my favorite shoes all muddy! Boo!
