The crocuses in my garden were so pretty this year, so cheerful after the long dreary winter. This little clump in my front border was especially colorful in the sunshine last week. They are almost done with their blooming, and the flooding rains we’re getting now will surely finish them off, but they were pretty while they lasted.

garden sunshine ornament during the snowstormWe have finally had a break over the past few days from the cold snowy weather, with temps well above freezing and some actual sunshine! It’s so nice to see the ground appearing again, it’s been snow-covered almost since Christmas day here and I am surely tired of it. I have had a bad case of cabin fever and I can’t imagine what it would must be like to have snow constantly for months at a time! I did finally get to venture outdoors for some photos over the past few days, the one at the left was taken during the storm. Click any photo to view larger versions.

Bonnie loves this warm spring weather and is spending a lot more time outdoors during the day. I came around the corner of the house and found her napping on the patio today. :)
