Happy Spring!

It's officially Spring and all that usually means around here is that its spring as far as the calendar says. However, this year it's truly SPRING! The tulips and daffodils are blooming,

The Goldfinch are just starting to get their yellow on!

the grass is green and the trees are blooming (those that flower) and are starting to get their leaves. It's been a week of truly warm temps. On Thursday my car thermometer said 84*! That's unheard of around these parts and in fact several records were smashed and new records set. All of these wonderful things would be great except for the fact that sometimes Mother Nature can have a very wicked sense of humor. Tonight and tomorrow night we are supposed to have a freeze and that means all the tender little darling plants that are sprouting up will probably turn black! Not good. The flowering dogwood will probably have the flowers drop off and we'll have to wait a while for the leaves.

My rose bush and Japanese maple are way ahead of schedule. The trees are almost 6 weeks early. Usually it's May before they even begin to bud!

Besides Spring arriving early, I have more exciting news. Scott got a JOB! Not only did he get the job, he started the job on Thursday. It's a 90 day contract but could go permanent if things work out. We are so excited for him! It's quite a drive to get there so we are keeping our fingers crossed that his car can hold up these next 3 months!

Zoe & Charlie enjoyed some deck time today. Scott took them up to the high school field earlier and they were properly relaxed all afternoon!

I didn't grow these tulips but I am really enjoying them. It brings a little bit of spring time inside too!

I'm still ELPA testing, at the high school all last week and that will continue tomorrow and possibly Tuesday. We are slowly winding down though and then the process will begin to start checking, double checking and then ship them off to the State!

We are so looking forward to Spring Break. We plan to stay home the first few days and then head over to Virginia toward the end of the week to see our little sweetheart,

oh and Amber & Andy too!

Have a good week!
