Change of Scenery

I've gotten rid of the snowy background and now I'm back to using this template. The view out my window has changed some since the last time I posted here. Yesterday was sunny and it got up to 41 springy degrees. But this morning is really cold again and instead of seeing snow, I'm looking at a lot of shiny ice on top of the lawn. Why can't winter just go away?


We're both looking forward to getting back up north to the cabin again. We've thought about taking trips, but each time the weather goes crazy and it's either too cold or another storm is heading our way. One of these days it's going to happen and I can't wait.


I bought this little solar plant at the Dollar Store to help brighten my spirits.  It does a happy dance when it gets light.  All day long, the flower goes back and forth and the leaves go up and down.  Oddly, it's not annoying at all.

Longing for spring too. It is sunny here today but windy and in the 30s. Not a day for sunbathing. ;-)
The solar plant is really cute.

I hear ya...why can't winter just go away. What's scary though is March came in like a lamb so does that mean the end of March will go out like a lion and really dump on us?

I am just afraid the flooding will be bad this Spring.
Your flower is so cute.

Such a cute flower. I would think you would want to stay down here until Spring gets a better foot hold up north. :-) But, hey, what do I know.

I hear you Cindy, I feel the same way, already. Here in Edmonton, Alberta Canada, it is -22C right now, with a wind chill that makes it feel -34C. Hurry up Spring. ;-)

I like your change of scenery.
We should start seeing a few spring like days soon. The first day of spring is only a couple of weeks away.

That spring is so close I can almost taste it.Sunday I watched a big flock of bluebirds and they are the sure sign with other fellow insect eaters arriving also, Red-winged blackbirds.Being close to the lake keeps winter around for you perhaps.

Oh my gosh how cute is that?? I love it lol.
I understand the need for Spring. No one needs the white stuff for as long as you guys have had it this yr. Winter has been ridiculous everywhere. I'm ready to just move on to warmer temps that stay warm and enough of this back and forth stuff.
