The weather forecast for the weekend is rain and snow with daytime temperatures only in the 30's. Not much to look forward to in the garden/growing department.
Today I found these crocus trying their hardest to reach for the sun. They were planted last fall and are the first I've had in many years. I like how the squirrels move the corns around and come spring there are colorful surprises to be found in unexpected places.
The daylilies are showing a little bit of green. With the big oak tree gone, they'll get more sunshine and should give us more color than years past.
There are still patches of snow to be found in the yard but that hasn't stopped the Muscari armeniacum from pushing up out of the ground. They are small grape-colored hyacinths, about 4-8 inches tall.
HH up on our roof top with his blower. Should a 61-year old man really be doing such a thing?
This is the cute dwarf hamster we bought for our grandson's birthday. They'll be meeting each other for the first time tomorrow.
