Toying with me they are

       Some days I'm up and other days I'm down..  It's all because old man winter and mother nature can't decide what they want this year.  This has been such a mild winter here so far.  We usually get snow before Thanksging and it stays with us until March.  There has not been enough to get out the shovel where I live.   The sun beats on my flower bed and on sunny days I can feel the daffodills wanting to peek out.. Then we get a day where old man winter huffs and puffs and blows the cold northwest wind.  

            I guess I need to get out my pots and some bulbs and do the above.

                                                            I just keep thinking spring  !!! 

 Until this guy below shows us what he's all about. Oh  ..  I'm sure he will get his way and the wind will blow and the snow will pile up.

I guess maybe I should just find a comfy place and take a sleep
     and  dream of flowers and spring

                 I am posting with Sally from for our  blue Monday
            and Mary from for mosaic Monday

 Have a great week until next Monday.


  1. My sentiments exactly! I found a daffodil about 8" tall in the garden ... this weather has everything & everyone confused.

    TTFN ~
    Have a beautiful week ~

  2. My sentiments as well Elaine.I have been thinking about spring planting and gardens.I even drew up a rough draft of how I would like it to look this year LOL.Here in Pennsylvania its the same.I know when we will get cold and snow and thats real close to Spring it happened alot of times that way.

    Happy new week ahead!

  3. Hi Elaine- Weird weather here, too. We don't have a speck of snow and usually by now we have at least a 2-3 foot base. Today it was 40! This is the Frozen Tundra- what is going on?

    I am dreaming of Spring too...can't come soon enough for me-xo Diana

  4. Although I like all of them, the first and last are my favorites. Beautiful.

  5. Thank you for stopping by and leaving a sweet comment.
    I am also thinking of an early spring. I think Ole man winter is still lurking around the corner.
    Have a wonderful day.

  6. Adorable post, the images of spring are so pretty. The dog is just so sweet. Here in Kansas last winter by this time we had around 20" of snow alread--this year .01 inch. WHOA--don't know whats goin on. Thanks for coming by and leaving a comment.
