it's been ever so long a  winter

we broke our own record for snowfall

never having had so much before 

just about 111 inches here!

daffodils are in bloom 
on the sunny hillside over looking town
fresh and new 

they nod their yellow heads together

as if to say

my word....did you ever see such a winter

but tomorrow is to be bright and sunny and warm

I hear the birds as I sip my tea in the morning

a pair of cardinals that visit the porch and eat the seed that falls

I am getting together with my sweet Bonnie this afternoon

which is one of my most favorite things to do....

even in the rain
