thanks! Love your photos, really helping to keep me sane at this point. Snowing to beat the band out there right now, 3-6" they say.Tomorrow is the first day of spring. One of my favorite times of the year. I went on a walk yesterday in Seattle and took some shots to welcome spring
It's been raining steadily since the wee hours of the morning. The "bunny trail" (snow blown path around the lawn, out to the compost pile) has many ankle deep puddles in the low spots that are still frozen. Remaining 12" of snow is sodden, the crust is gone, and there is no walking on top of it anymore. Driveway is muddy. No Red Wing Blackbird calls yet. Frost heaves are just brutal this year. A few anemic bulbs are emerging next to the foundation of the south side of the house. Maple buds are swelling, though!
Thanks for the lovely shots of what will, eventually, visit my little coHnuh of New England. You just can't beat flowering shrubs, I can't wait to smell Magnolia stellata on a warm breeze.
I love the Washington Seattle area, begreen. The home designs, gardens, and colors are beautiful. Great pictures - makes me look forward to my azheleas in a few weeks.Tomorrow is the first day of spring. One of my favorite times of the year. I went on a walk yesterday in Seattle and took some shots to welcome spring. It's coming folks, I promise.

wow, that's ruff.The little yellowish birds were trying to get at the feeder this morning (no luck until my better half cleared things off for them). Pup apparently not too impressed with first day of Spring - waiting for walk this morning at the end of the driveway, mom walking her down the street a bit later.

This one's a bit of a throwback for sure (been many years since we've had this kind of prolonged cold).wow, that's ruff.
I live on the fringe of a good size metro area near Ohio and while it's not deep Kentucky, It's much different from Ohio.my wife wants to move to Kentucky - that's a nice shot. thanks everyone for posting the sanity pictures.....
I was out with the fool dog at 5 this morning and it was beautiful outdoors. Pretty moon, the snow had refrozen and we (well, I) was able to walk on top of it and we went out into the woods. But I'm getting tired of the hat, mittens, YakTrax routine. Oh well, can't change it, so enjoying what it has to offer beats the hell out of grousing about it!
