This afternoon when I was out between rain showers with Bode saw some tiny yellow crocuses blooming in the grass between the sidewalk and curb at a house where a gardener lives. The birds out back in the trees have been singing like it is spring too. Saw the first robins today too. Hard to believe that less than a week ago it was 8°F (-13°C) in the morning.
I decided to give up Yahoo! groups for Lent. Then discovered that Celt’s Vintage Crochet web site, where I have been getting some great out-of-print doily patterns, had moved from Angelfire to a Yahoo! Group http://groups.yahoo.com/group/celtsvintagecrochet/. So gave up and joined. Too long to go without making doilies.
Still haven’t started any seeds indoors, but should soon. Got some new marigold seed. The seed I planted last year didn’t grow and seemed to be a lot more things chewed off in the beds.
