What a difference a week makes! Where there were mini-lakes and mini-ice-mountains, there now is lawn.
There are still some leftover icy patches in the shade but they are melting rapidly. I know it's really Spring because I saw the first robin of the season the other day. And when I peered into the muddy mess in the corner of the garden, I spotted the first rhubarb sprouts peeking through the dead vegetation. Can you see their rosy little noses in the middle of the picture?
That's the surest sign of Spring around here.
Although there are a few flies moving slowly in the sun, it's bug-free enough to leave the door open in the sunroom so the dogs can go in and out at will.
Cooper thinks this is the best of both worlds.
