spring?

Yes there are signs of spring, even here in Michigan where we got more snow this morning. My miniature Iris are in full bloom.

I'd stick a picture here if I knew how to do it.

Hi girls -just jumpin in for a sec to say hello and that we are still alive - noone has pelted tomatoes at us YET - but we are now going to appeal to the Provincial(State) level.

We will prevail on this and we will get a little house built on our Waterfront lot for my parents - I just hope the time does not run out on them before we get this beaurocractic process completed.

It is amazing how false public opinion is consdered before fact and truth!@!!

Congrats Nancy on the new rolling digs.

Love the Iris - can not wait for spring - still have snow here and got another couple of centimeters today.

Carol love the avatar - at least someone out their is thinking outside the box

PS the Fridge is now landed at Stephs - LadyBugs first present!

MoonBeam is gone now too so LadyBug has moved over and into her spot and filling the shoes quite nicely in my mind anyway - but a long way to go!!

Sharon, glad your refrigerator landed, and that ladybug's shoes fit. Don't let those locals give you too much trouble and I hope you can get the house going soon. It's lovely that you can have your parents so near.

Speaking of mothers and daughters, my daughter sent me this story.

After creating Heaven and Earth,
God created Adam and Eve.
And the first thing he said was, "Don't"
"Don't what?" Adam replied.
"Don't eat the forbidden fruit." God said

"Forbidden fruit?
We have forbidden fruit?
Hey Eve...we have forbidden fruit!!!!"
"No way!" "Yes way!"

"Do not eat the fruit!" said God
"WHY"
"Because I am your Father
and I said not to!" God replied,
(wondering why He hadn't stopped
creation after the elephants)

A few minutes later,
God saw His children having an apple break
and He was ticked!
"Didn't I tell you not to eat the fruit?" God asked.
"Uh huh," Adam replied.
"Then why did you?" said the Father.
"I don't know," said Eve.
"She started it!" Adam said
"Did not" Did to" Did not"

Having had it with the two of them,
God's punishment was
that Adam and Eve should have
children of their own.
Thus the pattern was set
and it has never changed.

But there is reassurance in this story!
If you have persistently
and lovingly tried to give
your children wisdom and they haven't taken it
...don't be hard on yourself...
If God had trouble raising children,
what makes you think it would be a
piece of cake for you?

Things to think about

1. You spend the first two years of their life
teaching them to walk and talk.
Then you spend the next sixteen
telling them to sit down and shut up.

2. Grandchildren is God's reward
for not killing your own children.

3. Mothers of teens now know "why"
some animals eat their young.

4. Children never misquote you.
In fact, they usually repeat word for word
what you shouldn't have said.

5. The main reason for holding children's parties
is to remind yourself that there "are"
children more awful than your own.

6. We childproof our homes...
but they are still getting in!

Advice for the Day!

Be nice to your kids
They will choose
your nursing home...

and finally...

If you have a lot of tension
and you get headaches too
Do what the aspirin bottle says...

Take 2 aspirin and ...
Keep Away From Children

I'm toasting the western sisters this morning with a round of good karma for all you ladies takin' to the road, towing your silver abodes for the first time or for the hundredth. I can just feel the excitement in the air as you get ready to head out.

Lovely iris, Uluwene. That burst of spring color is just what the doctor ordered for my winter blues, along with "take 2 aspirin and keep away from children" Maybe the label should read: take 2 aspirin and send the kids out to play in some sunshine! Thanks for the humor, Carol.

-J

Spring is in the Air in New England

Hi All,
Was out in the AS just hanging out looking at campgrounds and dreaming!

I can feel the warmth -- it's around the corner now!

Smile Feels like spring in Michigan too!! Tea anyone?

Hey Irish,
It feels that way here too! Lots of lovely walks the past week cause of the break in the weather... I was able to get lots of yard work done yesterday without even wearing a coat and we got around to putting a new mailbox and post too. Can't wait to get those flowers in around the base of it!! I need something tough that would trail over the brick base around the mailbox (full sun) and looks pretty, any ideas?

Tin Sista -- Are we living a duplicate life, or what? Last week when we got the big snow our mailbox post got cracked in half by the snowplow. That's the second time it was hit this winter. So we've got a new mailbox to put up too. But we have to wait for the the rest of the snow to melt and the ground to thaw a little.

We're in the spring stages of freeze at night, melt by day now. Can't wait to see some flowers poking out of the ground.

My suggestion for the mailbox climber? Clematis is a classic. The trick is to get shade over the base of the plant, and let it grow up into the full sun. It might take a year or two to take off. In the meantime, you could throw some morning glory seeds in the ground with it and they would be pretty this year.

-J

p.s. I'll have a bit of that tea, with a little honey, and a couple ibuprofen on the side. I'm sufferin' from a mighty awful bronchial cold today!

My flowers are here!!! Yippeee!!!

We moved in a new (not really, it was built in 1927) house last year and I planted 1400 crocus in my small backyard...they're in full bloom, look cool all over the backyard but the pictures don't do it justice. I also planted about 200 Daffodils & 100 red tulips...daffys are starting to bloom tulips aren't quite yet. We had a great rain yesterday...so they are all happy!

Thanks for spring sunshine and posies, Shari. I just love the crocus!! They're usually the first sign of hope for a garden after a long hard winter.

That's a cute kitty in your pics too!

How nice to see the beautiful flowers. Our snow is starting to melt. No sign of blooms of any kind. Put on the strong breakfast blend fresh ground coffee.
