From High-Stepping to Puddle Jumping

Just look at the hope.  Finally our snows are beginning to melt.                   The temperatures are beginning to rise and the water is sinking in slowly.   Let the little boys be boys.  They had a blast at Grandma and Grandpa's this weekend.  There were so many puddles, so much warmth in the air.
By noon, they were in tee-shirts, shorts and of course, rubber boots.  Just a few days ago, there was still a foot of snow on the ground, and still is that much in the woods, if not more.   
 I kid you not, this poor high-stepping  Ms. Robin Redbreast
was all flustered to have to come home to this snow, ice and slush just 
four days ago.  
 And folks wonder just why does Dar leave her last Christmas Wreath 
up until June?  Well, now you know.
The truth is out.  I will even light the wreath in the evening
if it stays warm enough to visit on the deck before then.
But, you never know.  I have seen snow on my birthday at the end
of the month of June...cannot be too quick to put winter away.
 As short as 3 months, is our growing season for our gardens, so
we savor every warm second.  Just like the little guys in the family...
we let the children play in the mud, the water, whatever Mother Nature 
provides, because, at a blink of an eye, it could be another 
white-out and cabin fever starts all over again.
I hope you are having a warming trend if you have been cold,
and a cooling trend if you are already tired of the heat.
Either way, 
find some joy in it all.

It always amazes me how quickly the snow disappears when the time has come! The birds seem to know it before we do. Our geese arrived with still a lot of snow on the ground and within days - the hills were bare. Our growing season is short too.

As always a great read and pictures. Love your Grand loves, and yep MUD is fun too!
The Robin is a prize shot. I looked before reading and that one made me smile.
Hug Bro. Bill for us and the Grand loves. What a crew you have, a great bunch our screen saver brings back some great times and friends although it was short.
((HUGS)) to Mom.

I love mud season--even though it's messy, it promises nice weather!

Glad to see that your snow is melting. Got lots of mud there...just the thing that makes for happy kids. Our Spring is almost gone, but you have much to look forward to.... 87 here today.

Okay I have to admit dear friend - I AM NOT A MUDDER! That would make me so nervous. How in the world and where would you wash those clothes - I feel like an old fogie. sandie

Kids and mud go together....it is a given. I feel so sorry for the little Robin....but God made them tougher than they look... enjoy the Spring as it slowly comes your way. :)
