Second of all (drum roll please........) my snowdrops are making an appearance!!! Never mind that they are growing where the warm air from the dryer is vented - IT'S NEW GROWTH!! IT'S GREEN for St. Paddy's Day!! The earth isn't dead after all!! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!

Third of all, I'm hooked on Downton Abbey....so see ya!!

  4. The early flowers--this is what Thoreau talks about, spring coming early in places. I have these little microclimates in my yard, usually near large rocks that hold the sun's heat for the night. I love finding the odd flower in blossom when the same thing in another area of my yard is not ready to bloom for weeks.

  7. "Life will find a way." Glad to see you guys are seeing signs of it. We got sunshine today for about 10min, and about 3min yesterday. Vitamin D deficiency is at all-time highs!

  8. Congrats on the dirt and snowdrops. I am seriously envious. In normal years we don't get them til midMay and with this snow and more coming, it could be June. I am delighted to hear of your love for smarties. I have been in love with them forever, and no, M&Ms are NOT the same thing.
