Yes- the forsythia really is about to blossom! Early March or not, Spring is sneaking in . . .We've had much warmer temperatures for the last couple of days, so I took a meander through the garden to investigate . . . I found I was not alone!
I was joined by something white, spotted, fury and completely crazy . . . this one has Spring Fever in a bad way!
The next succession of photos were taken in about 2.7 seconds- he was just freaking out on that chair!
And he was no better as we made our way through the garden. At one point he tripped me and nearly sent me to the ground!
As we went about I mostly found a royal mess- I was sick all last Fall and the annual garden cutting back and cleaning up just never happened. But I did find promising bits of color, too . . .
Early Spring crocus are dotting little patches of the garden with bright, happy color!
Aren't they fabulous? Oh, color- how I have missed you!
This, on the other hand has not given me a moment's peace to even consider missing it. I got in a whole two shots with the camera before he reappeared, bouncing his way here and there like Tigger in Winnie-the-Pooh. Up a tree- down again- flying over a bush . . .
and then to the top of the playground. The camera must follow him at all times!
Despite not having been cleaned up in the Fall, the garden looks like it fared pretty well . . . lots of sticks and fir branches on the ground from wind storms, but beside that, not too bad.
Though, I did notice this fellow and his trusty frog look worse for wear.
And some naughty son of mine left his bike lying out in the elements all Winter . . . hopefully it can still be ridden with all that rust! I would say it could be a good lesson learned, but I sincerely doubt that with This One . . . he is rather hell-bent on not learning any lessons.
He has voiced this often.
Is Spring sneaking in to your part of the world . . . ?
