It's Green Week

Our snow is finally gone.

Thursday is St. Patrick's Day.


This event will punish many innocent flowers.


I always feel so sorry for them. Poor green roses.


One of the first signs of spring is my Red Maple budding out.


The ice has finally melted on the pool cover.


Robins are everywhere chirping loudly.


Time to clean all of the pots.


Teddy has a bad case of spring fever. She wants to check the lower gardens for bad kitties at least ten times a day.

BTW.....it's 230 days until Halloween.....I'm just sayin' is all!!!

Glad your snow has gone and spring is on its way. Roads were closed in Scotland today because of snow, but further South it has not been too bad. Diane

Spring is finally in your own backyard. So happy for you and Teddy.

Beauty macro shot! The red maple buds are awesome!

I know your gardens require tons of work. Were I nearby I would help. All said, I love your gardens.

Thanks for sharing!

xoxo to "Teddy Bad Kitty Police". She is ready to resume her guard duties, which she takes very seriously! She is a special joy to me, more than ever.

I have spring fever too but it won't be relieved for at LEAST a month if not longer.
*sigh*

You go Teddy! Chase those bad kitties off!!

Those green roses do look kind a funny. But I am glad your snow is gone and will be able to play in the dirt soon.

Why did I have snow this morning. I'm way south of you. But it's gone now. My trees are all in buds too. Tell Teddy it will not be long before she can chase the bad kitties.

I have to say I really dislike those green roses :-) :-) :-)

It´s so nice to see that all snow is gone now! We do have some left here though.

I can fully understand Teddy´s wish to chase away every possible kitty :-) :-)

Have a great day now!
Christer.

still too chilly for birdsong here, but the snow has melted. more rain in the forecast for this week, so maybe the birds drowned instead...

Poor little flowers. It is quite tragic, really. Oh, Halloween is the BEST time of year!
