I use to love to play cribbage with your mom and skat! Lordy we use to have fun!

Yum...her walnut chews... I dont think that woman made anything that tasted bad. lol.

I remember going up to camp one time, and your mom made zuchini stew. I try to make it, but seems I always forget the cabbage. lol.

Remember "GILLOO"? Our HUGE snowman up to Pepere's camp?

And I always loved the way your mom's and dad's house smelled. Every now and then, I can smell that smell. Not sure what triggers it, but when I "smell" it, it feels like a hug.

I'm with you on that. I don't think I ever hit water that cold! I couldn't get out fast enough.

We did use to have fun. Remember some of the picnics we went on and your mom would make her walnut chews! One of these day I will have to make them for old time sake. Ah, to be a kid again!

Mary Anne, how long did you stay in? LOL! I loved it up to Pepere's camp. : ) I think there is still a pic on my sparkpage, with me and Dale on his warf.

My brother and I use to drive my Mom nuts asking to go swimming up to our camp on South Twin lake. After Ice-out, it was warm enough for us! She'd give in, and we would get back to camp with purple lips, and tell her the water was perfect. lol. I would not do that now, though!

We've been mowing down here for almost a month. Of course, the first part is what they call onion grass.

I don't like to wear fly spray. one, it smells bad, and two, my girl kitty loves to give me kisses, and doesn't appreciate the extra seasoning. lol.

I washed the outside of the windows yesterday! You can now see out my window at sunset! They had a hard winter. : )

Hale's dad likes Iris'. How do you pluralize Iris? Gee whiz. You'd a thought I graduated from Stearns! emoticon

If I go in the woods down by the stream, we have some little bugs that get on your face. Drives me nuts. I can't believe how things are just blooming. My Iris plants are already up quite a bit. Hope they're as pretty as last year.

I have masses of yellow everywhere. I think last year I posted some pictures of them on fb. It's sunny and in the 60's but the wind is making it feel much cooler.

I did the "no more snow" dance and "we want spring" for you guys. Hope it works. lol

My daffodils started blooming the second week in March and I still have some that the flowers haven't opened yet. They get a different amount of sun so they open at different times. I love it. Hope you're do the same.

I love planting bulbs. Especially since they come back every year. Today I had to separate some and transplant them to another bed. Some will multiply real fast.

What kind of bulbs did you plant?

I had a regular flowering crab in MA but when we moved here I found a weeping one and planted at the corner of the side deck. I doesn't get as tall and is just as gorgeous.

I SAW A ROBIN YESTERDAY! ON MY LAWN! WOOHOOOOO!! Now, every time I see the first one on my lawn, we have one more storm. Nothing too major, just enough to cover the bare spots so Ms. Robin can't dig for worms. Then Spring shall arrive. Yay!

I was watching the fox in the backyard this morning. He wanted to get to the bird feeder in the pool area but couldn't figure out how to get over the fence.

I heard that you guys could get hit with snow again on Friday. Hope it fizzles out.

Here is a great sign of Spring, one that I shared with the walkers in the China thread...

They have 2 eggs in the nest. : )

Too funny about the deer. We had 7 of them out back the other night, and 2 of them got really close to my snowball bush. lol. Would have been some good twig chomping there. lol.

Problem is a lot of the stuff in my yard is tempting to the deer. One big buck has even figured out how to empty out one of my bird feeders. He's tall enough to reach the holes and tips the feeder, getting the seed in his mouth.

I went out and raked today. With all the wind storms we've had there are sticks everywhere. I picked up all the big ones but really needed to rake the smaller ones. There are buds on everything. Even my lilies are up almost 4 inches.

You are right about hose winds yesterday, they were just blowing right through the house. I am sure the heating went on more yesterday than it did when the snow banks were higher. We had bought insulators in the winter to put in the electrical outlets and we remembered them yesterday and put them in. That was how windy it was here in Augusta
Today the Robins are busy looking for food there were lots of bird noises,few of them songs but never the less very cheerful to listen to.
We had plans to do Maple Sugar day at Norlands or Augusta Viles Arboretum but since there will be mud around we are staying home to take care of DH foot. We do not want any infection and now they say he has neuropathy we will be using even more caution.
Enjoy this early Spring day. I am about to search again for my bulbs, they appear to be doing well. Pat in Augusta.

The snow in my backyard had melted (well, at least until last night's storm) and I was able to get to my forsythia bush. I cut some branches and brought them into the house to force the blooms. It'll take a week or so for the blossoms to come through but well worth the wait!
