SPRING 2011
« on: March 20, 2011, 01:11:46 PM »
It seemed appropriate to start this topic on the first day of spring.  I'm sure it looks and feels like spring somewhere.  ;D  We know better up here in the northern climes.  But there are a few signs of hope.  These Snowdrops are near my basement wall, on the west side of the house.  They look pretty good, even though it was 19 this morning.

So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants:  we have done that which was our duty to do.  Luke 17:10

Wish we had spring. We have to stay indoors. All we have is rain, wind, and radiation on the West Coast.

The weather here is finally lovely after a nasty winter. The trees are in bloom, the irises and halfway up, violets and dandelions are blooming, and the peonies are coming up. The rosbush is full of leaves and the maple tree is blooming. Spring has finally sprung in these parts.  :D

We had our 3" of snow melt this morning, leaving a driveway we almost got stuck in this afternoon. It thrilled son, of course, but I thought we were going to have to hoof it through muck to get to the house. Spring isn't always so lovely.  :( None of my tulips have come up this year.  :( :(

Spring??? we had a teaser of that last week with temps in the 60's but now we are expecting a 1/4 inch of ice tomorrow. Ughhh.... I honestly don't mind the winter but I'm ready for spring.

I didn't mind winter this year, either - it was mostly spring-like weather!  :D

Reality check yesterday with 5 1/2" of snow--wet, slippery snow.  Full blown mud season prevents plowing of the driveway.  Snowdrops buried.  No warm up in sight.

Which reminds me I have some outside work to get done before our mud thaws.  :P

Now that our sping-like winter is officially over we are enjoying a winter-like spring - 2nd day of snowfall this week. Oh, What A Day That Will Be when we can enjoy a [There is a] Land of Pure Delight! With the pure joy & peace we will be experiencing seeing Jesus Face To Face, I wonder how long it will be before we notice the wonderful, consistant temperature. Until then, There is Sunshine in My Soul Today even if we do have to keep the woodstove fed.  ;D

Same here and amen! Two plants I have been nursing through the winter froze last night. :( The potbelly is roaring while the washing machine keeps rhythm. There is sunshine in my soul today!

...and something with a delicious aroma is warming up on the stove? I wish it were chili and cornbread here. But, it will be tasty anyway.

It is cold, wet, and not sun. :( But, spring is here and the storm will soon be gone. Let us pray for the people in Japan who have lost everything, that they may find God who is by their side.

Yes, we will continue to do so. Many may be drawn to Him.

To brighten your day!



Had to capture this through the bedroom window about an hour ago. I've never had one this close to the house. He was taking his meal. Hope it was one of those moles that wrecks our garden in the summer. The next 2 were taken yesterday.

You realize they aren't mine. They belong to the drugstore where I had gone to pick up medicine for a friend. They were so pretty I pulled out my camera and snapped away.
