Perfect pic to start the thread, Sharon!

We had 44 today and it rained on and off. The ice mounds in the yard are going away. Finally!

One of the branches on my Forsythis had borken, so, I finished pulling it off and put it in water. There are buds all along the 2 side branches. Maybe I'll get flowers. I've never had one of these before.

Most of the snow is gone from the driveway and front yard. Temp was 55 deg, last I looked. Back porch and garden area still has snow and is usually 7-9 degrees cooler on the thermometer. A cool microcosm.

Might as well start a 'Round the corner' thread w/ a little green!

Here's one of our new Hellebores.
It's second year here...we 'may' see blooms.

29 and dropping after a day of upper 30's and afternoon sunshine. Low to mid-40's and sunshine expected tomorrow and highs around 50 Tues. and Wed. with rain showers. Then it's back to highs in the 20's for 5 days or more. The snow has really melted quickly here and there is grass showing on some south facing hillsides. It's wonderful! I feel like a kid at Christmas!

Ric...I know what you mean. I'm not too keen on working tomorrow either. Spring fever is a serious affliction--even if it's probably a few weeks premature. Since I'm only working 4 day weeks as it is I'd better show up.

Adina...nice snowdrops and rainbow pics!

Marsue...that stomach virus went through my family back in Jan. No fun at all.

Looks like you put JW to work! My GS is is scooting around in a walker and starting to talk a little bit.


Photo: something "Springy" from last year.

Thanks for the new thread, Sharon. Adina's snowdrops are lovely as are your red berries.
Kiska: have a good time with your daughter and family!! Nice snow-covered-peak photo.
Ric: when do hellebores bloom? I have one that a friend gave me last year--it is a green hellebore. Your other "round-the-corner" pics are nice, too.
EB: your daffodils are beautiful!
[quote] Spring fever is a serious affliction--even if it's probably a few weeks premature.[/quote]
EB: how true! It is spring fever time around our neighborhood, too! It was a beautiful week-end with temps in the high 60's and low 70's, tree frogs croaking, kites in the sky, daffodils poking up out of the ground--all harbingers of spring, although we know that old man winter will rear his head again before spring actually arrives. We had two snows in March, last year! :o((
It was 58 on my backporch at 7:30 a.m. and the sun was shining brightly. I had my coffee while sitting in the porch swing. Very nice! Rain coming in this afternoon, though.

LOL Mau! You shouldn't treat Friday that way. He needs something to do. ☺ Feeling better?

Sharon, what kind of berries are those? Your temps are better. No more freezes, I hope.

EB, your daffies are prettier than mine. I'm assuming "Springy" is their name?

Bernie, 40's are good temps. Cool enough so you can work outside w/o kicking up a sweat. Warm enough to just sit in the sun w/o a parka.

Ric, love the pics. I can't wait for blooms, either.

Low 60s, very windy and sunny. We had a storm roll thru this morning though it was more wind than anything thing and we have more coming later this afternoon or evening. These should be more active storms since the sun has come out and made the atmosphere more unstable. WInd gusts are averaging around 40-50 mph right now.

Bernie: how nice to get to take out your frustrations on the house and hopefully, you are getting paid for it, too!
Kelli and Marylyn, I wish I could send you some of the rain we are expecting--it is now overcast and windy and a few raindrops have already fallen but nothing going on right now.
Pepper: that's a pretty high wind!
-9F---no wonder Kiska is going south for awhile! LOL

Currently 68 and cloudy here.

Friday and his "most favorite toy of all"---it's like a giant, fuzzy spider bouncing across the floor and he loves to chase it.

Thanks for the new thread Sharon. Love Adina's snowdrops! Something I haven't tried yet.

Kwanjin, what a great opportunity to try the forsythia!

Seeds, isn't it great to see the snow melt away!

Kiska, what a lovely blue sky against the blanket of snow!

Ric, pat, pat, pat. Mondays are the hardest. The hellabore looks fresh and ready to go! The rockcress looks like a nice salad :o) Spiky!

Early, nothing like a little guy scootin and talkin! Beautiful Daffs!

Country, spring fever has hit Iowa too! It's going to be over before we know it!

Kiska, too cold! It's so nice to be able to visit your family!

Sharon, a high of 70*. Absolutely perfect!! Pretty berries. They look like a type of Eunonymus. (Burning Bush ?)

Marsue, I am always amazed at how cold the water is when the peepers start singing. It's too early here for them. Poor poor Friday - smile.

Bernie, do you get to keep any wood?

Kwanjin, they are a nice sight!

Sharon, poor poor Peanut!

Kelli! Do you have puddles yet :o)

Marylyn, weeding! Good job!

Kiska ~ have a great vacation!!

Pepper, you are a bit windier than me.

Marsue, looks like he's good at killing spiders!

62* tops today, pretty windy, a bit of rain, another bit of rain and now the sun is out thru clouds.

Guess who thought he was coming to dinner?

Mau the Hellebores bloom here around mid March to whenever they decide to seed and stop.
The Heritage series are mostly sterile hybrids so they hang on pretty long.
Different ones bloom at different ages.
The Royal Heritage took 4 years for the first bloom. 6 years for full growth.
Others we have took two.

45 here now.
We maybe hit 50 .

Sharon, our average annual rainfall is 16 inches, but that is just a mathematical number. I've seen it range from 4 inches to 40 inches. If there is a typical, I'd say it's more like 12 to 14.

It got down close to 32F last night.

Yes, we have new cabinets going in there. I got roped into taking the wall out & rebuilding it.
This is a house that is getting flipped. They took possession on Friday. They hope to have it on the market by March 1. Then they hope to make the big bucks!
I think this is the fifth one I have helped them with.

40 Most of the snow is gone. Only piles left.
We'll get more, that's for sure.

55F this evening with another 50 day expected tomorrow. It's all downhill after that--Cold and snowy by the weekend and all through next week.

The daffodils are a variety called Tahiti. They bloom late in spring, last a long time and are very large.

Sharona...What species of geese were they? We have a lot of Canadian geese that overwinter here.

I finally got around to posting the entire series of photos from last summers garden project. You have seen many of them but if you are interested the thread is here:

Marylyn feel free to shoot all the geese you want.
We have thousands that winter here.
The golf courses hire egg switchers and breakers just to try to keep the population down.
But them heading North is a good sign!

Pepper glad you're OK.
We're getting your winds tomorrow.
Temps will be near 70 then drop to the low 40's overnight.
A high wind warning is in effect from Weds afternoon to the early AM Thurs.
45-65 MPH gusts behind a T-Storm.

Bernie it's a tuff market to try flipping.
Good Luck to them!!!

Good morning! I couldn't see the geese, we just heard them, so I don't know what kind they were. LOL, Ric... I know how much of a mess a bunch of Canada geese can make. I love that photo, E_B!

The kitchen is beautiful, Bernie! We have a slide in stove, too, and like Kelli, I'm waiting for it to die so I can get a different one (not impatiently, though, as we spent our appliance budget on a washing machine last month.) I would love to have a gas stove, but a smooth-topped one would be my second choice.

We had a quarter of an inch of rain yesterday! Yayyy! We could use more, but we'll take anything at all at this point. It's going to be a beautiful day today.

Brad Ausmus has been my favorite Astro for years... He's a great catcher (well, he was a great catcher... now he is merely a really good one) and, more importantly, a really great guy. Last year the talking heads on the radio kept saying that that was mostly likely his last year as an Astro, so I'm not surprised, but I am sorry... I'm sure the guys in the Dodgers' dugout are glad to see him. He plays hard (although his RBI isn't as good as it used to be, his defense is still excellent), he is really funny, and he's very nice. He has a great reputation as a teammate here. (sniff, sniff, blow...)

55 F tonight after reaching a high of 59F earlier today. Winter is returning with high winds and rain tonight and snow and cold temps through the next week. Not much snow left here now. The big thaw was wonderful!

High wind warnings until 10:00am tomorrow morning and river flood warnings until further notice.

Joan...We are no longer accepting snow storms here that last more then a couple of hours or deposit more then 3" of snow. Bernie will have to keep it all :-)

Marylyn...Geese have overrun some areas around here. The hunting seasons for them keep getting longer, to no avail. They sure can cause a lot of problems.

Sharona...If you have the same virus that went around here I sure don't envy you having to work today.

The rain has started. Goodnight.

I hit a wall of water as I exited the Hwy... 5 minutes later it was done.
Then the Sun came out.
Now though we are getting Pepper's wind.
The sustained winds are at 30 MPH gusting to 51 MPH.
Because there are no leaves the wind is roaring thru the branches.
It sounds like a freight train!
The good news is the wind is SSW so away from the house.

We had a windstorm on Tuesday night--blew off some shingles from my roof which I didn't even notice until a nice roofing guy rang my doorbell yesterday afternoon and pointed it out to me. He repaired the roof and also caulked around all those pipes that stick out of your roof. Did a good job, gave me a written one year warranty and all for a good price. Very nice young man--the kind a girl would take home to mother. :o))
Kelli: a big orange indeed. Looks like some good fajita strips and onions there, too.
EB: great shot of the geese! I saw a flock of geese flying north a few days ago myself. Wonder if they were the same flock that Marylyn saw? I'm going to check out that link once I post this.
Sharon: Just when you think you've seen everything along comes painted grass!! LOL Lovely pic of the sulphur. Sorry about the stomach virus--I can relate--only mine lasted just a few hours.
The windstorm also blew some power lines down in my yard---yikes!!! The power company had all that "fixed" by noon, thank goodness, especially since my side of the street is serviced by another electric company and has underground utilities. The folks across the street have above ground(on poles) electric service and they are frequently losing power when we on my side of the street just "keep on going". LOL
Nice cabinets, Bernie and I like the bowl collection, too. In the "flip" house, that hole in the wall certainly opens things up. I surely want to see the finished product!
Celia: beautiful little flower--what is it, please?
Gee, Ric, if you were closer I would be glad to give you the tile saw Buddy bought when he re-did our kitchen countertops 2 yrs. ago with granite tile and the tumbled marble squares. I certainly won't be needing the saw, that's for sure!!! It's just a cheap one but it did the job for us. Probably wouldn't last very long under heavy use. Years ago Buddy laid tile for a living so it was a fairly easy job for him to put down the 12" granite tiles on the counters and do the backsplash in the tumbled marble. I'll post a pic of the finished product.

It has been a picture perfect spring day here. It was 66F a little earlier, sun has been shining all day, NO WIND--thank goodness, after the windstorm on Tuesday night. I was out in the flower bed pruning roses and doing some clean up. Sure felt good to be able to get out and start some gardening work once again. My friend Friday was my constant companion--he's like a kid--right under my feet.

Had a wild and windy night last night! Wind gusts of 60 mph+. Steady winds around 45 mph. Those gusts blew some shingles off the garage roof, again. Some of the shingles had been nailed down with only two shingle tacks so no wonder they went a-flying!. My son will fix the roof this weekend which gives us a chance to get together and cook a big meal.

Was a little scary lying in bed and listening to things crashing around outside, but no major damage. Our area had some trees down across a road or two and plenty of people without electric, but nothing major and no injuries.

Winds are dying down now. It was amusing seeing the thistle bird feeder flying back and forth in the wind and the gold finches "stuck" to the sides eating seed.

Marylyn, fingers crossed for the rain to hold off for you. Have fun at the picnic.

Bernie, that IS a lot of cats! LOL

LOLing at Callie!

Seeds, too funny about the finches! That would be hysterical to see!

23F with 37 for the high. Heavy snowfall expected tonight and tomorrow. Dang. Isis has a vet appt. in the morning. Not fun taking a yowling cat in a snowstorm. Hope it's not as bad as they say. 4-8 inches predicted.

Celia: my flower pic above is an "Oranges & Lemons" gaillardia.
seeds: funny about the finches--they were really wanting to eat--LOL
Sharon: Callie found a nice "bed" for sunning
Bernie: Happy Friday the 13th to you, but you can keep the cats--LOL My puppy, Friday, is causing me enough grief. I had to chase him down this morning. He got away from me and ran 4 houses down from mine. I was beginning to think I wasn't going to be able to catch him before he got into traffic. Bad puppy!!! :o((
Marylyn: hope the rain holds off so you and the big bunny can enjoy your picnic.
pepper: nice woodpecker shot!

Another nice day on tap except for intermittent cloudiness. Sun was out earlier but is now hiding behind a cloud. I did get to enjoy my coffee in the porch swing before the sun hid itself. Two of my friends and I are going to lunch at a local Mexican restaurant today. I'll eat enough cheese dip and chips for all of you---LOL

33* and I just took clothes off the line. Our snow is now reduced to 1'' and should start pretty soon rather than this evening. Weather liars have done it again.

Seeds, Those winds would be scary and the finches made me smile. I'm glad you're ok!

Sharon, I'd love to join Callie and just bask!

Country, a big smile at all the puddins!

Marylyn, I hope you have/had a nice picnic!

Kwanjin, maybe you'll be reduced to an inch like us. It hasn't even started snowing here yet.

Pepper, I love the cheery red head!

Marsue, Oranges and Lemons are on my to-get list. Lovely sunrise.

There is a good chance of rain today. For once I feel like part of the larger world.

Pepper, I hope that you aren't getting an ice storm!

I am hopelessly behind again. I told myself that I wouldn't do it any more & Voila! I did it again! Great Pics! Every One.

I thought that you all deserved something for Valentines Day! You're a great bunch of folks & I couldn't have found a better place to be! :D http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bsuziBrNeO4

The last 3 days have been Sooooo windy! At the moment it's 46 & clear, but we're supposed to have some rain tomorrow & Sunday. Snow seems to be in the forecast for Monday.
Se_eds, Sounds like you had a bad bunch of "Howling" wind like we did! It was very scary here, as well. Roofs were blown off & all kinds of damage. A lot of folks around here didn't have electricity for many hours...AEP has been working over-time.
Ric! LOL!!! You know good & well that I was manning the shovel!! :D I showed him 1 time how to use it & then I couldn't get it back! :D Grammy's little helper... :D
E_B, Do you have any more cute picks of your little feller? :) Your fun is just about to explode! :D Yep, you will start to run very soon! Good thing you're in shape for it! ;)
Kelli, I have another sprout from my Aloe! :D Yours is Gorgeous! LOL! I 1st thought that you called it (I read wrong) Aloe foxfire! :D
Rusty, Glad that took a break in the painting to come back to us! ;)
Sharon, I think that is my favorite pic of Callie. I don't think I ever told you how nice you have the bird bath looking! ;)
Sally? Did you speak too soon? LOL Send some this way, please.
Marsue, Friday is going to follow you everywhere! A good garden partner! ;) Glad that things are turning to spring for you. ;)
Adina, What a beautiful, but ominous sky! Wow! A Low pressure system always gives me a headache, too. But as soon as the precip hits my headache goes. Nothing like Mother Nature! :D When I say that I have a headache, DH always runs to the computer to check the weather channel! ;)

I hope you all have a wonderful V-Day!

Celia: neat picture.
Cooler today but lots of sunshine. I'm going to get outside and prune the crepe myrtle in front of the corner window later today if it doesn't get too windy. I noticed blooms on the lorapetalum yesterday! Daffodils and hyacinths are poking up through the ground. :o)) Even the shrubs and flowers are ready for spring!!! LOL

I just happened to look out the window and it is SNOWING. Not again! I know it is not spring yet, but I keep hoping it is getting around to that season. It is not supposed to amount to anything though. I am certainly enjoying all the pictures and really thank you for taking the time to post them.

Adina: here is one of my lorapetalum shrubs (I think I am spelling it correctly). I have 7 of these shrubs altogether. You have to keep them pruned or they will get really big. I like them because they not only bloom but they keep their leaves all year around. The leaves vary in color from green to a dark purple color. They are supposed to bloom in the spring but mine don't seem to know what time of year it is---LOL I had a couple of them that had blooms in the fall, too. You can probably go to plant files and find a better picture but here is one of my shrubs as of yesterday.

The correct spelling is loropetalum--also known as Chinese Witch Hazel. Here's a link for you: http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/56038/

Pepper, we have one close to us, but haven't gone yet. It's on the list of to do's.

Kelli, the rainy season! Lovely pink blooms!

Seeds, that's our kind of day. Remember, February is half over and nothing can stop spring!

Dyson, hate the winter winds!

Marsue, the anemone is bright and beautiful! I love the white showing off the center. I'll bet it's not hardy here. The witch hazel has pretty pink blooms too!

Rusty, I love the pumpkin color. The shelves will be nice!

Ric, it's too bad the storm took down tree limbs. Will you use the wood or give it to someone?

A recovery store is a store that sells the stuff that falls off of trucks or gets damaged and can't be sold in regular stores. They also sell discontinued items. Everything is new but the boxes might be beat up or there might only be one or two of the item. They have everything there. You have to be there first thing in the morning or else you are pretty much wasting your time cause all the good stuff will be sold out.

Ok, on to weather. It is a sunshiney day with a little bit of a breeze and below freezing.

Adina could that fear of Red Moons may be from living so close to Transylvania?

We had a huge limb come down in the Ice Storm a few weeks back.
Had to wait until the ice was gone to do any serious sawing.
Chain Saws are serious tools!
But it's mostly cord wood now.
We started a fire in the neighbor's pit and burned all the brush.
The heavier stuff we'll use for our evening neighborhood gatherings.

Celia I hope Isis is doing better.
Sick cats are never Happy Cats for sure.

Mau the Anemones are blooming already?

It was cooler today but I managed to do some clean up work in the back yard flower bed anyway. Friday enjoyed being outside while I was working. He found a dead mouse somewhere and promptly started devouring it but I managed to get it out of his mouth before he swallowed any of it. Yuck!! He has eaten no telling how many frozen worms which he finds in the grass. Yuck again! Fortunately they don't seem to have had an adverse affect on him. You would think he was bred to find small game the way he goes nosing around in the grass. LOL

Currently 40F and heading toward Dyson dark. Low tonight forecast to be 30F
