Tiny Green Sprouts Pushing Up Through The Ground

March 23, 2015

Good morning.  Once again, we have a beautiful sunny day.  Cold, but sunny.  I sure do miss the warmth of Florida and having my morning coffee out on the porch. 

Yesterday I went outside to find some promising green shoots coming up through the ground.  I actually found quite a few of them.  Here's one in the little garden beneath the kitchen window.

I found several other little green sprouts beneath the hedge by my living room window.  Most all the snow is gone from there.  However, in other parts of our yard, there are still huge piles of snow waiting for some warm temps so they can melt.

Sorry about the blue tinge, but this shows how high some of the snow still is in our yard.  I think Spring took one look at this mess and just kept on going. 

I'll have to start leaving my living room door open so that I can see what's happening outside.  While I've been sitting here typing, a delivery truck came by and the delivery man left two huge  boxes on the front door steps.  A mattress and a box spring.  I just went out to bring them into the house.  Thank goodness one of the dwarfs was there to help me. 

I don't have a truck or racks on the roof of my car, so I ordered these two items through Amazon.  I belong to Prime, so they were shipped for free.  This is a great deal for folks like me who can't always carry large purchases home from the store.  And the cost was pretty much the same as if I'd gone to a local store.

Along with free shipping, Amazon Prime gives its members free music, movies and TV programs.  If you do much on-line ordering throughout the year, this could be a great deal.  Check it out.  (no, this is not a paid advertisement)

There isn't much news for today, so I think I'll go see what sort of mischief Pogo and I can get into today.  Till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.

Hugs, Edna B.

I am glad the snow is melting at last. I see some little shoots popping up around too! Our son Jeremy has prime from amazon. It is great isn't it? It has been a cool day and my hubby left a window open in our bedroom. I did not sleep well last night so came in to rest a bit. I could not get warm and saw that window open! LOL! Be safe and enjoy your day! Hugs, Anne

That is a great deal that you received. And nice to have had help bringing it in.

I have some new photos to share on my blog today. I did not get a chance to blog over the weekend. You know how it is when the boys are home and only one computer.

Spring truly is on it's way for you. We are now jumping right on in to summer..

Talk to you soon, Hugs, Beth
