Welcome to My World Today

Today I was reading over at "The Green Grass Grows All Around" and was inspired to post about my world today...

It is dreary and cloudy. It is 56 degrees but is supposed to be in the 60's tomorrow. The weather is strange and goes from one extreme to another from very cold to nice and warm. I'm not complaining about the warm days.

We have lots of birds around and they are singing and driving Andy crazy because they keep coming in "his" yard. He takes it very seriously when an invader enters. He feels compelled to run around jumping and barking telling them this is "HIS" yard and they are not welcome. Of course, I love seeing them.

Here is part of what my day is like. Kate is entertaining me... She loves to tell me that her new baby is healthy and developing and growing and it's a boy.

Here is something green popping through. I'm not sure what it is, but I'm anxiously awaiting some color and flowers... the boxwoods around our patio stay green all the time.

Here we have a "beautiful" weed showing color. Who knew that a yellow dandelion would be so nice to see in the middle of our yard. It made me smile to see it poking through with a promise of more green to come! (and probably more yellow flowers too, much to hugsum's dismay)

This is a view of all the trees in our back yard. They are bare. We do have a huge holly tree that stays green all year and the tree in our front yard still has it's leaves on it, but they are dead and not very pretty.

These are more weeds blooming in our yard... who knew weeds would bring so much color and pleasure in the middle of winter! In the summer they bring much frustration.

This is a small picture of my world... It is the beginning of new things. I am thankful for color and promise in the middle of winter.

What is your world like today? I hope it's nice.

First of all, she is truly beautiful. Secondly, I have a secret: I don't hate dandelions as much as other people do. I kinda like them.

I am so jealous of all your "green things" that are popping through!! We have nothing up here but snow still!! We won't see anything green until at least April!!!
