"First a howling blizzard woke us,
Then the rain came down to soak us,
And now, before the eye can focus,
Crocus!"

  4. Brian ~ smoking hot? lol...I'm going to remind you of that in August. We hit 70 degrees today...felt so good to open up the house! Think it will snow again? It usually does!

  6. Anita, because we're south of you! haha...and we don't get to say that to very many people! :) I haven't seen a bloom yet, but things are close! Then we'll get ice...it always happens.

  8. Getting a little warmer up here
    But I still have a bit of fear
    That we will get more snow
    Before spring is a go
    Very nice pic too
    As I finally got chance to come over and visit you
    You just always go to the birds
    With all kinds of nice words
    So keep having fun
    Now this rhyme is done.

  12. I always thought a "crocus" was what you'd hear if one of those ornery black birds got really ticked off!

  17. The quote's perfect for your photos...delightful! Spring is definitely here too! This nice weather makes me feel like picking up the rake and cleaning the leaves off the plants....but know only too well that the Midwest weather is full of surprises. Today warm and spring like tomorrow wet and snowy....for a little while anyway. Thanks for sharing your spring photos.
