Our little cottage at the edge of the woods, as we fondly call home, has been teeming with life and beauty. Of course there’s often a bully that tries to ruin the fun!
It was another beautiful afternoon with highs reaching the upper 60s!
It’s a beautiful day! I took a walk downtown and here are some of the sights.
Despite record-breaking cold temps, snow, ice, torrential rain and winds gusting over 50 miles per hour over the past couple of days, there are definite signs of Spring in my yard. To start, the grass is turning green!
Right now it feels like spring is really here, and what that means for March in Maine is that the sun is out, it’s almost fifty degrees and there is NO SNOW in the forecast! There is still some snow cover on the ground but it’s getting lower every day. We’ll have to wait before we start to see buds and blooming. For that reason I want to share our vintage 1960s wedding guest book I selected which is filled with sweet illustrations of flowers.
Can you spot him on the “mountain” which is my forsythia covered with snow? I didn’t think I’d see him until the snow melted! He’s not as fortunate as Chippie whose burrow entrance is protected from the snow by my deck. (I also shovel a little path to her foyer entrance.) Even so, ain’t no mountain high enough to keep him down! Minutes later Wishy ran over to me and I took some of the more comical pics of him yet!
