Pussy Willows

Pussy willows are beginning to bloom. We don't have any in our yard but was visiting Mom and they are busting out of their coats. I love to see them before they start getting their pollen as I'm allergic to that. But they are another sign Spring is near.

We have so many birds fluttering around. Guess that's because they are well fed. It's so fun to watch them and listen to their music. We had 8 squirrels feeding yesterday. They have fun chasing each other and soon will be doing it in love..... mating time for them is near.

We quit feeding our raccoons, fearing for our little Sparky's safety. An eight pound dog hasn't a chance with a 30 pound raccoon.

Valentines Day...almost 51 years of marriage to the same guy, add on 3 years of going together. It's amazing as we are both only 55 years old... ha ha ha

What a difference a sunshine, blue sky makes for me. Spring is truly around the corner.
