Early Spring? Hmmm.

I'm hearing talk of "early spring" from friends outside,  (as in the outside of Alaska). This makes me evaluate. I used to LOVE spring...the trees budding, tulips starting to pop out of the ground, warmer days, greening grass - early signs of spring.

Around here....the sun is rising earlier and setting later.  A quick look out the window, however, tells one it will be quite a bit longer before spring truly arrives this far north. There are no buds....and nothing green to be seen for miles. I need to learn new observation skills to detect springs arrival up here.

Last year I started seeds in February. I have no clue when I will start them this year - but NOT in February. I was done with them before it was time to plant to garden! LOL

Playing Catch with Grandpa

Benny talked Arielle into coming up so he could visit "his people." He brought his green tennis ball for a game of catch Grandpa/Papa. 

Want me to throw it? 

Ok- Catch! 

He catches with a "bit" of help from his mama!
