Oh Spring!

Oh Spring! 
If I were more clever I'd have some ode to spring ready to go... but alas... I'll just do it with an image. 
It's worth 1000 words anyway, right? 
The crocuses have started blooming! Yippee!!! This is a sign that spring is just around the corner, which just couldn't be close enough.  We are desperate for it here, spring that is.  
 The garlics have sprouted too! Melanie gave me extra ones this year, so I do hope I get some good ones. I think I need to procure some correct soil. More manure and compost. 

Yesterday was an absolutely beautiful day. We came home to 30°F weather, but by Saturday it was a balmy 65°F! I decided to pull out the new (birthday) patio furniture.
While this was absolutely lovely yesterday it may have been a mistake. It is supposed to snow tonight into tomorrow. (big sigh) I am SO ready for spring. 

We have a new building to look at from the front of the house:
 I do like the reflective nature of the glass. It has given a bit of extra sunlight. Very nice in those dark days. 
And finally, because I knew I would go stir crazy on the plane to Las Vegas, I started another pair of socks. These are a pair from a Zauberball sock yarn that is really wonderful. I am especially pleased with the pattern I finally decided on for the cuff.

OMG, are you kidding me? Those crocuses are in your garden RIGHT NOW??? I don't believe it. How is that possible? We still have feet and feet of snow piled up around here. Nothing is close to coming out like that. OMG. I am so jealous.
