It's hard to think that less than a week ago our yard was still buried under a minimum of two feet of snow. Then the rains came relentlessly pelting and melting the snow until our streets were rivers. This weekend Bear and I had to get out to take advantage of the warmer weather and go for a walk in the woods. Snow can still be found in the lower places (like this stream bed), but it is quickly melting.

Our crocus bulbs made it though the winter. They are about an inch high. I look forward to starting my first real garden. This afternoon I will begin potting the seeds for my herbs and tomatoes. Things like my pumpkins and squashes will be planted later directly in the ground.

The squirrels are happy for the treats that we leave out. They have been our clowns all winter long. I'm glad they left our bulbs alone.

The lake is still frozen over. One more week and spring will be here. It's sad to see the snow leave (I love it so) but the excitement in seeing the world wake up is over whelming. I wish you all a blessed day whether you are just going into spring or just starting to cozy up for winter. Where ever you are, whatever you are doing, Have Fun!
