First Spring Walk

Hello All! I hope you enjoyed your weekend. We had a crazy Saturday. It snowed all day, yep I said snow. We probably ended up with about 1". Most melted as soon as it hit the ground. Man, winter does not want to give up here in New England.

The weather goes from freezing to almost 50 degrees. Most days we are 10-20 degrees below normal. It was been a wacky winter here.

For example, last Wednesday was an incredible day, it was partly cloudy with temperatures reaching 50. It was cause for a little dance and an opportunity for Otis and I to take a walk. Our first walk of the spring. It was like discovering a whole new world. 

Most of the snow is melting, there are just the big piles left, like to one on the corner of my walkway. Go away we are tired of you being around!

Otis had a blast sniffing, sniffing, and more sniffing. He was so happy, he actually got to walk on the grass. Tho the land still has that brown tone to it. 

It has yet to awake from its winter hibernation. The only green to be found is on the evergreen trees.

This is such a great time of year to get out and walk. Streets feel wider, the days are longer, and the world feels like it is starting anew.

As we finished up our walk, there is a tree on the side of our condo. It blooms white flowers first before the leaves come. As I looked at the tree closer, I could not believe my eyes. Are those buds I see? I think they are.

Oh Boy! Let spring begin!!

Have an awesome day!


  1. Very spring here this week. But I still find myself getting cold at night (this place has no insulation) and having to use the remote next to the bed to turn on my little black stove. (SO glad I bought those!)

    1. Hi Brenda: We also have a Duraflame heater, they are the best. It is amazing how well they work. I must confess I am looking forward to not needed them and being able to open the window (no heat or air conditioning, giving us a break on the electric bill). Have a great day.
