Buried

"Aye, matey. Tis buried treasure I'm searchin' for."

Well, no it's not really a treasure, or even an item that's treasured. It's our summer sprinkling can sticking its head up giraffe-like from under snow. Since the appearance of robins are still a ways away, I'm placing this in the corner of a harbinger of spring. I really know it's coming. I'm going to keep repeating this to myself today, as I peer out my windows at snow showers. Well, on the plus side of the ledger at least, the 'dusting'  will cover up all the dirty snow staring at us around here.
See, even in dark hours, without robins, I can keep things positive!
I think.

  1. OMG!! You all got a ton of snow. Thank goodness it has stayed up in the mountains here. I know Spring is just around the corner. I bought some seed packets yesterday and I am ready to start a few thinks indoors. I know I get ahead of myself and I hate to say this but Spring will be at my house before you find it. Sorry MB

  2. Methinks that ol' can has seen better days. When I first looked at it I thought it was a shell casing. That's my Big Bang Theory! Spring will come and all will look better once more and life goes on and I think a glass of wine is in order for you!

  3. Maybe some containers of gold coins will appear out of the snow! ;-)

  4. Nothing like what you're having, but we got 2-3 more inches here and the temperatures are heading south as in Antarctica as compared to, let's say, Key West. Oh well, could be worse. I could be in Maine. ;-)

  5. Two weeks ago I saw my first flock of robins. I think they were lost and arrived here 6-8 weeks too early. That lawn sprinkler may be useful in about three months.

  6. I had been seeing robins everywhere for about a month, but I think they have moved further north now. I hope some of them are headed your way!

  7. As long as there is fresh, white snow, you (i) can't get too mad at it . .

  8. That is a versatile watering can. On one side you get sprinkling. On the other side you get streaming.
