Almost Here

You know when you have the feeling that you are on the verge of something great?  
We are on the verge of green.  The days of brown and gray are almost a memory.  


  Spring is gifting us early this year.  The tiniest of buds are on the trees. 


The springs are flowing freely without an icicle in sight. 


Miniscule bits of green are showing up here and there.
That long winter's nap is almost over.....wait, was that winter?

"Now spring has come, the birds rejoice, and chaunt the cheerful lay;  The farmer with exulting joys, prepares for April's day."  

The Farmer's Almanac

  8. I have heard lots of people talking on the news about the early Spring but here in California today, we are having lots of rain, lots of wind. And I hate to tell you but it all seems to start here and roll east. Get prepared, I'd say, for a bit of rain. We are expecting 1-3 inches from this storm with more to come.

  10. What a wonderful winter we have had. All my trees are budding big time. I don't think my grass got entirely brown all winter. I'm a happy camper.

  14. Doesn't March come in like a lamb and go out like a lion? I am still expecting a final good-bye gesture from winter.
