FINALLY! After the last week of snow, sleet, rain, cold and raw temperatures, we were getting ready to give up that spring would ever really arrive. On Sunday morning we finally started to see blue sky and sunshine, and it was a gorgeous day.
Even though the K9 crew loves the snow, they are happy for spring as well. They know we’ll spend more time outside when I don’t have to bundle up every time we head outdoors. Besides, there’s still snow left to play in!
Luke’s play technique is a bit different than Cricket’s – he sometimes enjoys just lying in the sun with his ball.
We played until we had Cricket’s tongue hanging out!
Then the crew took a break while I did some raking in my flower garden. Luke kept an eye on me, and Cricket made sure I saw she still had her ball – she was not ready to quit!
After some raking, I explored the yard a bit to add to my bottle collection. Our contractor started this collection for me when they were cutting trees along one of the old stone walls. I found two more bottles! These beauties will get cleaned up and line a shelf in our barn/farmstand. I love exploring the yard for old treasures, and we’ll be spending more time doing that this spring.
While many others have been sharing photos of their first yellow daffodils of the season, this is all we have to show of ours.
That’s OK, we’re just happy to see anything green! The nice weather is supposed to continue all week, so we should have our own flowers to show soon enough. Cricket got to play some more ball in the afternoon, and later in the day she and Luke were both passed out indoors. All that fresh air and sunshine wore them right out!
