Daffodil Days

Oh and can I tell you how happy I was to see the Daffodil Days sign at our local Flower shop? I watch for it and hope for it because it means Spring is here! And I buy up many bundles of the sunshiny buds and deliver them to friends who need to see the end to a long winter!! And then they all start to open and the promise of Spring is more than a promise!!
Also after a date with my lovely Miss B... we came home with the Percy Jackson book series. I have not read it but it must be good she is riveted and making her way through book two! Blossom and read!!!

Maple Syrup time!!

Look it is Ireland in the snow!!!

I get excited when the Maple Syrup days come to the Chippewa Nature Center! It means the thaw is coming! We are almost out of the wintry woods so to speak! So after a crankified day at work, I met my gang out there for a mucky trudge on the trails and the feel of the sun and a hint at the season to come. Bronwyn packed up all her journals and notebooks and tries to be scientific, and Ella does her model poses and runs till she has a mud spatter pattern all the way up her backside, and me I happily plod in my best purchase of the Winter 2009 my Bogs, and the Irishman thankfully captures our day on film. Ironically, it has been a bad syrup year up here due to TOO WARM of temperatures!! Mixed blessings I would say! Hope all are enjoying the promise of sun!
