Do You See What I See?

* A big THANK YOU! to A Peek at Karen's World for selecting me as Blog of the Week. Thank you for the honor, Karen! *

The older I get, the longer winter seems. This morning, though, I noticed on my drive home from the kids' school that the willows are starting to blossom. There's no turning back now! Spring has officially arrived in Alaska. I took a quick run through my yard to find more proof . . .

Aha! The daffodils are coming up!

There's my rhubarb!

If you look closely, you can see new buds on the shrubs!

Just look at our lush green lawn! Oh. Um.
Check back in 3 weeks, please.

Dinner last night: cheeseburgers on the barbie, french fries

Spring is definitely coming! Yeah!

Our lawn is sure a brilliant green right now...too bad it's all weeds and almost no grass.

Good! I was feeling guilty having all this beautiful color around me when you were still posting pics of snow.

Karen Mortensen said...

Glad Spring has finally made it to you.

I thought global warming was supposed to be a big deal. Here in Texas, we are getting into the 90's this weekend with the lows in the 70's. You may officially mock me now for how miserable the heat will be and how high my air conditioning bill will be this summer.

I do sort of miss the excitement of the first signs of Spring. It's so fun to see the hint of grass and the first few buds of the new season.

How exciting! I need to get some rhubarb around here.

Your yard looks like mine, I see a tint of green and the snow is "mostly" gone. Weeeee!
