First of all, my Millie (and the other chickengrrls) wants to say "hello!". They have felt a little neglected and wanted to make sure I knew they were still photogenic enough for a knitting blog. I assured them they were.
The weekend was the usual back and forthing between spring and winter (sprinter), and with several blue sky moments it was hard to complain (much). Saturday, and Sunday both, I was able to take a walk and see my favorite view. The only difference between them was a pure white mountain on Sunday.
Spring is trying with all her might to beat out winter and she's leaving tell-tail signs everywhere. While walking I heard the sounds of children playing outdoors and their joyful shouting made me smile. Various bird songs (including a red-winged blackbird!), reminded me mating season may already be in full swing. Trees are starting to leaf and blossom. Soon the little birds will have privacy for their homes and babes.
Daffodils, jonquils, violets and an occasional tulip, have started their spring show. Nothing can stop the signs, even though, the next day everything was covered with snow. Recovery is quick.
