This time last month…

But At last! A brief respite from the dreary, overcast, lousy weather we have been having here lately. It’s a beautiful, sunny 70 degrees! We’ve had massive amounts of snow, followed by rain in the last month. Ugh. I’ve been waiting for the backyard to dry out so we can replant the trees along our property line. All of the old pines bit the dust last fall and unfortunately had to be removed, leaving us with the rather unsightly view and noise from the road nearby.

And wouldn’t you just know it, the county put in a walking path right on the other side of our fence just 6 days later. It figures. I NEED my trees back so I can pretend my local area hasn’t doubled it’s population in the last 10 years. If the ground could just dry out for a week or two, I could have my trees.

But alas, more rain is in sight for the end of the week. So I will enjoy the beautiful sunny day I have been given, and vow to go outside for an hour or two. There is plenty of time this evening for scrapcave rearranging and project completion.

And for your viewing pleasure…spring flowers! Straight from my own yard for now, until I can make it to the zoo for “Zoo Blooms”.

    You’ll see similar pics on my blog…78 degrees and 7 inches of snow in the same week. Now the Mississippi is flooding! And more rain on the way…my Oregon webbed feet are coming in handy!
