Spring Has Arrived!

I went camping last weekend, and Friday night it was really cold... It got under 30 degrees. Today, it will be 80! I moved the indoor plants outside, and hope I won't have to bring them back inside. The trees are blooming finally, and I have cabin fever. I started to sweep the deck, around the peanuts, of course, so as not to disturb the squirrels, and while moving the lawnchair, settled in with a glad of tea and a chocolate bunny, and took off my shoes. Ah, my toes are finally free! They have been waiting all winter for this!

The squirrels were undeterred by my presence, and stuffed two peanuts in his mouth most trips. The birds are out too. Red wing blackbirds, nuthatches, sparrows, chickadees, titmice, cardinals, even a bluejay. Somehow I never get the camera ready in time to get the picture.

Toe nails should be painted gold and scarlet for the USMC on one foot, blue and gold for the USN on the other! Ha!
