Nebraska...


First we had snow.  Then we had warm weather.  Then snow.  Then warm weather.  And it seemed like it was like that for weeks!  But it was really a good kind of snow.  The kind that would begin to melt the very next day  (so you didn't have to get out the shovel) and by the third or fourth day it was gone.  Then we would have a few more days of really nice weather and then...SNOW again!


After the off again, on again sun action,  we then began to see.....


Little spots of Spring color!


And because I'm posting this nearly two weeks after the this last photo... everything has actually gotten even more green and tall!  I've even got little buds on my Forsythias!  Now I'm REALLY excited!  To me, it's not the Daffodils that tell me it's spring, it's the Forsythia shrubs that do it for me!  I can't hardly wait to be able to cut a few branches and plunk them into a vase and have lovely spring color in my house!  I'm thinking maybe by the end of next week I'll be able to snip a few branches and force them to bloom in the house!  Yeah!!!!!!

Today is not such a lovely sunny day.  It was gorgeous Monday and Tuesday.  Today it's all cloudy and cool.  But that's okay I've got packing to do.  =-)  

Hope everyone out there are doing well.  Thanks for sticking with me even when my posts are dull.  =-)

It's forsythia for me to. When my daughter was home, she used to sneak and cut some off of a neighbors bush for me.

My tulips aren't poking out yet, should they be?
