But.... but..... but...... we still have three feet of snow and it's a -15 c wind chill outside. A sweater certainly won't cut it and I have no hope in hell of finding a perennial yet, let alone moving the mulch so you see, I need your help just to find anything that might even remotely consider growing in my yard soon.

Up here, I think the official date of spring should be in mid-April.

And I'm not finished my cross stitch picture so I can't put it away just yet.

You guys have been in the house to long, so put all that craft stuff away and get out there and start helping me as I am only going to be here a short while

--- so help me and maybe I will go out like a lamb.

Ok Tammi you can finish your cross stitch -- I guess I should melt the snow before I tell you to get out side --- so give me a few days to clean up all that white stuff --- I just hope the old man doesn't sneak back in and dump some more of that stuff on my little darlings as they're pushing their heads up out of that cold ground .

Thanks Spring I finally have some color in my yard, not much but I'm happy to see some, have a few yellow and purple crocuses in bloom. Have a couple branches of my early rhodie in the house along with some forsythia and they are blooming. The plywood I had covering it for the winter, got knocked over on it when we had a bad wind storm so brought the pieces in the house to see if they would bloom and they did. I bring in forsythia every yr. Thanks for finally showing up. Please don't let the old man come back until at least next Dec.

Hey Spring. I looked out to find those new starts you were talking about and all I found was 6 inches of the white stuff. Let me sit here for a couple of days more and then I'll get out and finish cleaning out the pots. I started last week when the temps were in the 70's.

Oh dear, please don't melt it too quick, I just looked out at our mountains and we will drown if it melts too quick, as we may from the sring rains already!!!.....Ach, how can such a nasty (but I love it?) climate create some of the most outdoorsy people on the planet? Because we get so little of the good weather, but the beautiful land, so we go forth and enjoy what we can of it!!!

She has to wait and see if she sees her shadow. When she does I'm going to catch her in a live trap and take her down the road!
