Coming soon to a backyard near you, it's Spring!! If it's happening here, it's bound to be happening to you soon. Very soon. Just keep saying that, over and over. Spring is very soon.
The trees will begin to make leaves (okay, so this one is in the potting shed, but other trees are sprouting, too. they just weren't as easy to get to as this one.)
The lemon trees are even in bloom, getting ready to start making lemons that we'll enjoy in December and January.
Things are starting to sprout from the ground.
And, the daffodils are blooming. Too bad I don't have more, but it's just this one, lonely daff this year. (bulbs don't do well here. they have to be dug every year or they rot unless they're in a VERY well drained area and my back yard is not well drained.)
Okay, so now, you have a reminder of things to look forward to. Take care and have a great day. If there's an internet connection in the hotel room, you'll get to hear all about how cold it is in MN.
I'm going to be gone all of 30 hours and normally, my family would be acting like I was headed out west on a wagon train. But not this time. I used to find it annoying that they clung to me and cried because I was leaving for three days. Seeing it as a non-event might be more annoying. Sydney's departure? Me: I'll see you tomorrow night. Her: "K. See ya'" as she trod to the bus stop. Not even sure I got a hug and a kiss.
