Not sure about you all but I’ve been in a serious funk of late. Spring cannot get here fast enough! Even though we have had a very light Winter, the constant grey and the inactivity compared to the warmer months are just about driving me batty. I heard on the radio that if you find yourself on the couch selecting “next episode” for hours, you’ve got the winter blues. Er, that would be me. I’m eyeball deep in “Grey’s Anatomy”. That series doesn’t end!
I believe we have had two days of sunshine in February and on one of them I went outside with my camera and got some pictures that prove Spring is right around the corner. I also have begun to braid Karma’s mane to celebrate Spring. Her first braid I did yesterday. It sits on her forehead and because she still is a bit nervous with anyone touching her face much less having an arm or two in her face while her mane is being braided, the braid was not centered perfectly. But! It’s there and that is what counts. I even trimmed the ends of her mane after I braided it.
To prove that Spring really is right around the corner, let’s look at the proof in the pudding, shall we?
First time without my woolen cap on my head since last Fall.
Karma’s first braid of the Season.
First Spring migratory birds to arrive …. Starlings!
A half-asleep Red-Bellied Woodpecker. (LOL)
Ice Skating season is over.
Snow melting on the roof.
Three Greyhounds out for a walk. These dogs do not tolerate cold well.
Parents out with a stroller and their little one.
There you have it. Hoping those of you in the February Funk right along with me got a whole lot of encouragement today. Soon my flowers will be seen. I checked again today and yes yes yes Daffies and Crocuses are popping up. And then I’ll be so busy in my gardens I’ll be mourning my days on the couch watching “Grey’s Anatomy”.
The woodpecker picture is extremely cropped and is not a perfect still picture. I could have traded it for another picture of this guy, but I wanted you to see his third eyelid. He must have woken up from a long Winter’s nap. LOL
