Top o' the Mornin' to Ye!

HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY! And thank goodness that April is drawing closer each day. Maybe it won't snow in April? We've had a bit of light snow for the past THREE mornings. It's crazy. However, we have seen a few signs of spring on our walks. The heather up on my header is in full bloom in a variety of colors throughout the neighborhood, and the witch hazel is going to seed. I did this stitchery a long time ago, and it's in our hallway for a daily reminder.
On our last walk we noticed these beauties. Once a few little twigs and now a tall tree that has survived several moves in our backyard, this pussy willow signals quietly that spring is indeed on its way. Hurrah!
I know Spring is coming!

Spring is definitely here. The azaleas are blooming.

It was almost 90 degrees yesterday.

Looks like spring. Feels like summer.

Pussy willows are one of my favorites. Now that they're out, spring won't be far behind. It seems like the Pacific NW had a long winter last year too. I remember it was very wet in Oregon and Washington, but probably not snowy like this year.
