Signs Of Spring I
The cold snap has finished for the week bringing nicer temps, around 50 (about 10 celsius). I have been seeing signs of spring around the yard. My grass is getting greener and little green things popping up out of the ground. Several of my shrubs have even gotten buds on them! The picture above is "I think" a lilac bush. I can't really remember what it looked like in the summer when we moved in and my neighbor walked with me naming everything for me, which I should have written down. I'll need her to give me another tour. I don't know if you remember, but her mother-in-law owned the house from the 40's through the 90's and many of the plants around the house were planted by her. Look at all those buds on the stems and if you look beyond the lilac bush, into the sunlight, you can see how my yard is turning green!
I am keeping Braden and Dalton home one more day. They improved somewhat yesterday but still aren't 100% better. They barely ate yesterday, just a small amount of soup and a couple of popsicles. I think one more day of rest will do them wonders.
Last but not least, go visit
Country Girl because she is having a super cool give-a-way! Leave a comment on her blog to win a beautiful photo!
Have a great day! :)
