Look what happens when we have two consecutive warm (70) days. Spring happens!!
Happy little daffodil faces pop open.
The plum tree buds swell and turn pink.
The Forsythia bursts into color.
The Maple tree starts putting out little helicopter seed pods.
The Clematis in the butterfly garden starts climbing the trellis.
I think this time it's the real thing. Spring is here.
Last week I received one of my favorite kind of packages. It was a 'just because' gift. Isn't it great to get a gift when you're not expecting it and you haven't done anything in particular to earn it?
Chan sent me adorable little froggy sugar, creamer and tea bag holder to go along with my froggy teapot. Aren't they cute? If we're having a bad day, a cup of tea with these little guys will make us smile. Can't help it. Thank you, Chan.
One of our DOT friends, Joss, paints. She showcases her pictures on her blog and a while ago I asked if she would sell us one. She was so very kind and actually sent us two, of our choice, and only requested a donation to a charity as payment. Since I think I am more afraid of Alzheimer's than anything in the world, that's the charity I chose. Joss agreed and I then had her paintings framed.
I hope to have all the rooms in the house painted this year and then we'll select the perfect spot to hang them. For now, here they are in the office.
I have met the nicest people blogging. I really feel I've made some friends doing this. Who would have thought?
Here are some pics of breakfast this morning. People breakfast, that is.
The dogs all lie quietly in the kitchen until we finish, but we usually save some scraps for them to share. Here are Sky and Fudge telling Rob they're ready to lick plates.
This is what they've been waiting for.
Yum, that toast and peanut butter sure is good.
Samba just rests her head in my lap and waits for my next move.
Our vet clinic has a sign out front that has different message all the time. I think my favorite was "It's Cool To Bring Stool". I never did remember to take a picture of that one, but I like this one, too.
Time to go pick up the dogs from the spa.
