No, we did not build snowmen or go sledding. We lolled in indolence. It was glorious. Unfortunately I forgot a coffee date with a girlfriend, and felt like such a jerk when she called. She is a true friend, however, and does not hold it against me!
But the sun shone, and a dry wind blew, and the snow went away even if it was too cold to melt. And this morning, look what I find in the back yard.
Can you believe it? Violets? They were under two inches of snow yesterday, and here they are, as bright and perky as cheerleaders. Yay violets! You GROW, girls!
Later, we encountered an unusual sign of impending spring. Geese don't perch on parking lot light poles,but these two were up there yelling and carrying on like they had just "made it" I suggested thqt it might be a good nesting site because it was safe from most predators, and the lights would keep their butts warm ant night, but DH pointed out that goslings - walk - out of the nest. They are waddling around, looking for food for weeks before they fledge enough to fly. High-rise nesting is not good for geese.
Still, the young geese are paiaring off now. Spring is on the way!
