Yesterday afternoon, after picking up the mail, I took a trip around my yard and was excited to find friendly, little signs of spring beginning to pop up.
My pretty grape hyacinth are returning:
The daffodils are starting to grow:
And my giant, pink hyacinth is poking its head up:
It has been warmer over the last week, with temperatures in the high 40's during the day, so this is helping all the early bloomers along.
I didn't think to check the weather report last night, though. This morning, I woke to crunchy ice crystals covering everything outside.
I was as tickled at this as I was at the signs of spring yesterday! Everything looks fresh and pretty and it smells so good outside.
Roxy had to take a look at the icy stuff, too:
I'm guess I'm an equal opportunity weather appreciator right now.
Sunshine? Love it. Rainstorm? Sure thing. How about a bit of snow and ice? You betcha!!
Ask me again in June, though, when the other states begin having their summery, sunny days and it's been raining here in Oregon for three straight months. I probably won't be as pleasant. Though, I will probably still be posting pictures about it.
