It's still melting

I thought I'd show you what my backyard is looking like these days.

It's hard to believe, when you look at this barren brown ground, that it will ever be lush and green.

Or that you would want to sit on these chairs, look out over the pond, and watch the antics of birds while they bathe.

Could this ever be green again?

Will this big snow pile ever melt?

Yes! Here comes spring! (In the front yard mind you, but spring none the less!)

Oooh! And what is that sneaking up in your front yard? Do you know? My yard is just getting prettier by the day. I'm enjoying it immensely. I've seen pics of your garden, so I know yours soon will be too.

I do know what is sneaking up. They are very pink tulips. I have them all over my yard along with a bunch of other bulbs. They all come up at different times depending on how long the snow latsed in that particular spot.

Those tulips are encouraging signs. Your garden looks like mine with the stubborn snow piles just not wanting to melt. Grr... today it was warmer, but still there are the piles.

I thought you wrote a good comment on my blog - I know exactly what you are talking about gardening and crafts. I figure it's easier to have one blog and then you can switch back and forth depending on the season. It's especially good for those of us who live with snow for so many months. Our world seems to be getting more specialised so I like of being able to have a few interests happening.

I also have found that some of the craft people enjoy finding out more about gardening and vice versa. And everyone likes hearing about chocolate - your Easter basket post was good!
