Mother Nature is going through Menopause

Saturday we enjoyed temps in the low 80's. It was just a hot flash. We're back to cold, windy weather, including the snow that fell Sunday night (it wasn't really ooblek, but you should have heard the boys!).

Raking all the winter dead leaves from under the lilacs revealed the grape hyacinths poking their little green spears above ground. The grass is growing again, and the yard is looking green finally. Some of the trees are swelling with buds, but no leaves just yet. I'm enjoying the bird song as they flirt and fight over mates and territory.

TopDad and I talk about moving south when he retires; or becoming snowbirds and just heading south for the winter. I'm getting too old for these long, dark, cold winters. Come on Spring!
