Clash Of Seasons

Spring is here. Or is it? The calendar says that Spring arrived on Monday. It was 85 degrees here that day and felt more like the middle of summer. Tuesday was 50 and we had thunder storms for a large part of the day. Our entire winter has been like that, swinging from the 70s or even 90s down to the 20s and back again. The Christmas cactus in the kitchen are confused and are both blooming.
 Today actually feels like Spring. It's warm, but not hot. There is a breeze and the sun is shining. We all decided to see what the yard had to offer. Is there anything prettier than a cherry tree in bloom? Yesterday's ran brought out the flowers.
 The crab apples aren't quite ready yet, something to look forward to.
We have a little patch of wild hyacinth.
 The violets, which are my favorite, are spreading all over the yard. These are under the crab apple tree.
 These are under the oak tree.
 Everyone found places to roll and sticks to chew.
Sebastian has started using his cone as a scoop to dig holes.
 Sydney is on lookout for any squirrels that might think of invading.
Mackey wants to play ball.
 Please throw my ball.
 Look I found another one. Will you throw them both? 
Spring is my favorite season and the dogs seem to like it a lot, too.

After our surprise snowstorm, spring will be so very welcome! It's 35 here today, and supposed to get warmer until it's in the high 50s next week. We'll see how long those snow walls take to melt. Glad the dogs are having fun, and I'll throw the balls for Mackey. It would be fun to see how she chased both at once!

We loved stopping by your blog! Loved the pictures it really does look like spring is there at your home. We're getting closer to spring here, we still have pretty chilly days here right now.

Great pics - esp the gang playing! We're bracing for another 6-12" of snow tomorrow into Saturday... which really puts a crimp into our weekend plans and Penny's first nosework trial!
