See What We Found

First of all, Happy St Patrick's Day to all our friends. A couple of the girls are sporting green collars, but were moving too fast for a groggy Mom to snap their pictures. Since they're Portuguese, they don't get all dressed up today, but here's one important green item I'll be wearing.
This is the school treat bag. It works well, because it leaves my hands free and it has a two way zipper, so I can easily get at the treats with either hand. Norma Jean is learning that when this bag appears, good things happen. So far she's doing well with her lessons. Name response has never been a problem for her and she knows sit. We're working on getting into heel position and walking on a loose leash.
Morgan has arthritis in her hips and back legs and in the morning she feels a little too stiff to tackle all the steps to the back yard. Instead Rob takes the others into the yard and Morgan and I wander around in the front yard, fewer steps.
See what we found today.

With all these suddenly popping up, Spring must finally be here, even if it did snow on Monday.
Yes, most of our finds are weeds, but as I've said before, if not for weeds, we'd have no lawn at all. Besides who decides that some flowers are worthwhile and others are just weeds? We like flowers of all types. Have a wonderful almost Spring day and don't drink too much green beer.

If it weren't for weeds, I'd have very few flowers!!

Maybe you'll join my movement to have the dandelion declared our national flower.

You have green things! Lucky you! And we have some grass mixed in with our weeds for a lovely lawn; it's the natural order of things. Besides, our weeds still look green during the August drought, while the neighbor who pays a gazillion dollars a month to the chemical lawn people goes brown at that time!

yeah, dandy-lions are a good sign...all is well in nature and spring is arriving :)

I like your style! One dog's weeds is another dog's wildflowers!!


Maggie and Mitch said...

Mom says there are no such things as weeds, especially if they flower! She thinks dandies are cheerful!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Morgan, Mom says her knees are pretty stiff today too:) Our hyacinths are really pushing their way up now, we sure hope we don't get a freeze that ruins them. Happens all the time.

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you!!!

somebody who realized they couldn't make money on flowers that grow freely. Right?

My crocus are finally coming up. I love it. g

We have a single daffodil blooming here--I think it's a sign from Tanner...But I'm hopeful that other signs will come quickly and I won't notice the weeds! :-)

I hope you've had an enjoyable day!!

Sam said...

It sure feels like Spring here - the weather has just been perfect. Glad to hear that Norma Jean is doing well at school. Happy St. Patty's :)

If it blooms, we're happy to see it whether we planted it or not. I still need to decide which girl is going to get the benefit of the doggy training gift card I "won" at the gala auction. The way Sissy has been barreling through our walks, she's the most likely candidate.
