I think it's spring...

I think it's spring, I think it's spring..... (maybe if I think it hard enough, it will happen.)

I'm normally not one to lament too much about the seasons.... but I am absolutely done with this winter. We've been in a deep freeze for two weeks (and apparently there's still a week to go)... weather that's normally reserved for January.

Like poor Rocky, I've resorted to howling at the window whenever I look outside.
You know it's cold when you have to resort to curling up in the curtain just to keep warm while bird watching.

And while Rocky watches the jays and dreams of the day he can chase bunbun again... I'm trying to be a little more proactive.
When I got groceries, I picked up a bunch of peachy tulips. My Valentine's roses had died off and I thought these might bring a nice breath of spring inside... even if it's nowhere to be seen outside.
I also grabbed a pot of mini-daffodils. Since they are potted, I can save the bulbs and put them in the garden come fall. And if the squirrels will leave them alone, I can finally have some mini-daffs in the front garden. (That is one good thing about all this snow and cold... those darn rodents can't get to my bulbs!.... not that they probably didn't get them all before January...)

Come pay day, I'll hit the craft store and get supplies for a new door hanger... maybe that will finally convince Mother Nature to get in line!

Three weeks until Spring, but yup, close enough -- SPRING IS HERE!

Pretty flowers. I have big plans for my front gardens this year. Hopefully I can get it done. My mom is excited about it too, because she's getting a lot of my sedum. Spoiled she is. LOL

Brilliant. My Valentine's flowers are still going strong but I'm over the pink and red. We are expecting more snow tonight and tomorrow but when I dig out, I'm heading straight to the flower aisle of the grocery store.

Take heart , I saw 7 robins yesterday morning sitting on the trees in my front yard . Spring can't be far off if the robins have made it all the way here . We've had pretty much the same temps as you ...

Those tulips are SUCH a beautiful color.

Our weather can't decide WHAT it wants to be. One day the high was 55F. Two days later it was 84F.

CRAZY days.

Oh my I can't wait for Spring, it was in the 30s today and sunny, feels like a heat wave!

We've had Cardinals and a few other birds throughout winter, but for a few days now, there are many more, and they are flying around in groups, and act like they start nesting already, and also all the singing! Sure signs that warmer weather is on its way.

So long as your new door hanger can resist snow, you should be good...

I kind of feel like Rocky, too. I find myself looking out the window, and although I don't howl (audibly), it crosses my mind!
