No kidding eh? I couldn't believe it when T came in last night and told me it was snowing! Here I am getting excited about the garden slowly showing itself, and it snows! Thankfully it didn't stick around.

37*? Really? We must be settling in quite well. I knew I'd flourish in this climate!

I'm sitting here with my backdoor and front kitchen window flung open, letting in the fresh air. It feels SO good! The birds are chirping like crazy, and my windchimes on the front porch are echoing the voice of the wind! I keep saying that it can't possibly get any better than this, knowing full well it's only just begun.

My plants in the flower bed on the front of the house have grown a good 6" since I cleaned the layer of leaves off of them last week. They're taking on a beautiful, deep red hue, twisting and twirling toward the sun. MW says they look like tulips and peonies. I can't wait to see what the blooms will look like! The flowering bushes that stand against the deck off my bedroom are full of tiny little buds. I'm not sure what they are, but I can tell they are going to be stunning when they blossom. My vegetable seed are in flats on stands under lights in my bedroom - the only room in the house I can usually keep all the kids and dog out of. I'm watching them closely for tiny, green peeps to start peering back at me!

We were gifted by the high tide a couple of days ago with a tree on our beach. It's a very pretty piece of wood. Part of it needs to be a bench of some sort. I'm eyeing it, trying to see it's finished form, so I can draw a diagram for Brad to start working on it.

Am I really here, or is this just a dream?

Gorgeous moon! I wanted a good shot of it through the clouds and the trees, but my camera wasn't cooperating. We saw geese at the golf course and all kinds of things are shoving their way up through the dirt in the yard. In particular is this fuzzy green stuff that's spread everywhere! We didn't have that in the desert. Must be that stuff they call grass.

Robins have already arrived up here, as well as the seagulls...I live up here in Fort Kent, and we have sea gulls. I wonder why they haven't evolved yet. I heard a song sparrow the other day too, as well as the chickadees testing out their spring song. The snow is melting fairly fast and our front yard is about 75% free of snow. Soon everything will open, and we will get that green we all look forward to.

Oh, need to change the locale, Casper.
