Al does, but I don't - I think I should take some pictures before everything leafs out!

Thank you for your well-timed advice - I do want to mention that in Massachusetts, some "burning bush" species are considered noxious weeds - like the ones that are eating the foundation of my house. Did you really paint your trim that lovely color of purple? Thanks, Toni! xxx, Carrie

Carrie, you are too funny!

The "lovely purple" trim is really oxidized brown! I am going to like it, I am going to like it, I am...

Thanks to both of you for the nice comments.

Carrie how much snow do you have today? We are at about 9 inches and still falling!

Wet wet wet - all rain. Some sheets, some buckets, some cats and dogs, some steady, some pouring, but no snow. I thought it was supposed to be spring this month?

That's brown? I like purple, not as much as I did in 6th grade when I got 6 new dresses for my new school and they were all different shades of purple, but i do like purple. But ever since Crayola renamed the colors I've been a little hazy on the names - was it a luscious periwinkle? An intense lavender? A pale lilac? Well, now that I know what "oxidized brown" looks like I'll know what to ask for, because I do like it!

Thanks again, Toni.
