Yearning for Spring

February drags on a little, and I find myself yearning for spring more and more.

I have noticed the bird life getting active and the days getting longer...perhaps spring is on it's way.

I hope so!

  4. Regardless of what the calendar says, February is the loooooongest month!Love your cardinal!

  5. I love love love red cardinals! They're so beautiful! I haven't had the chance yet in my life to see one in person. I would love to though! -- February really does drag on! Even with the business of life we've got going on over here. *sigh*. Can't wait for spring!

  6. Neither a bee nor a butterfly, but a crow! Like Jeremy in "Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH": [Sees Mrs. Brisby's amulet]
    Jeremy: Ooh! oh-oh-oooh! A sparkly!
    Mrs. Brisby: What?
    Jeremy: You're wearing a sparkly! Can I have it? Can I?
    Mrs. Brisby: Pay attention.
    Jeremy: [still mesmerized by the amulet] Wow.
    Mrs. Brisby: I need you to get some string.
    Jeremy: Str-ing...
    Mrs. Brisby: To move the block.
    Jeremy: Move... the block. Hey! I've got string! I've been saving them.
    Mrs. Brisby: You do?
    Jeremy: Oh, yes. Red ones, blue ones, green, yellow...
    Mrs. Brisby: Good. Bring all the string you can.
    Jeremy: Okay... that'll take all day.
    Mrs. Brisby: Good! Get going.
    Jeremy: Just thought I'd mention in passing... I've always wanted a sparkly of my very own.
    Mrs. Brisby: Will you get going?
    Jeremy: Oh! Excuse me, pardon me. Bye.

  7. Whoops, that comment was meant for yesterday's post about loving sparklies.
