Time Marches On


Today was absolutely glorious...70 degrees, clear blue skies, and a lovely breeze all made it as close to a perfect day as anyone could wish for.




Not only is it the 1st of March, but today it just felt like spring had finally arrived.  You could sense the world coming back to life.  There are nests being built...




Lawn chairs are waiting at the ready.




The pups sense it too, and want to be outside all of the time now.




The water seems more blue somehow...




And little birds perch on nearly every branch singing their little hearts out...




Smells that haven't been smelled since last year at this time are emerging and curious noses need to breathe in the promise of renewal...




And branches are unable to hide their new colorful springtime attire.




But better than all of that was seeing the sun still high in the sky even though the clock said it should be getting dark...oh how I love you sunshine and long, light filled days!

Happy March Everyone!!!

  5. It was glorious and 80 here today. The perfect day to spend with my mom, sister and sister in law for lunch and shopping. Can't believe we had this weather on March 1.

  6. Isn't it poignant though to face all this fresh new life without our old darlings to enjoy just one more glorious day.

  10. We just had a snow storm three days ago that dumped ten inches of snow on us, and we're expecting another foot tomorrow. You are sooo lucky to be experiencing Spring where you are.
    Wonderful photos, Kat!

  12. Yesterday WAS gorgeous! I'm noticing that the maple trees are budding, but many of the others are still holding off. It's going to be a weird spring. (Misty is wearing a very Ruby look on her face.)
