Thankful Thursday.

We are thankful that it stopped raining at last and the sun came out. It was even comparatively warm when the wind dropped, about 45F. If you look carefully amongst all the weeds, you can see three crocus flowers in the bottom right corner. The first sign of Spring in our garden. It looks like all our nip plants have died though.

  5. We're glad you have some sunshine! 45F is still a little cool to us, but you seem happy! Bummer about the nip plants though - perhaps your mum will plant you some more.

  13. Glad that the rain has let up so that you boys can go out.

    I am still indoors because it's over 97F out. The vet says I have to stay cool and hydrated. Still not eating much.

    We should mix our weather up a bit and all would be lovely!

  17. We love crocus! Harbingers of spring. Enjoy your time outside to the fullest as the weather has been unpredictable the world over. The groundhog in the States predicted an early spring but we think he may have been drinking. Horrible storms with record cold are blanketing the country.
    P.S. how manly you look wearing your camera, dear Flynn.

  20. Oh noooooooooos not the nip plants. That is so sad that they died. But it is fun to see the little crocus. It is time for Spring, that is for sure. Take care.

  21. The first sign of spring makes us think of lighter evenings and warm paws on outings into the garden and baby mouses and birdies - mum is shuddering at the thought of presents being brought home!! We are pleased you have got sun instead of rain today it's great to feels warmth on furs.
    We hope new nip plants are on the top of your mum's "things to get" list.

  28. Oh, now, seeing green grass and crocuses in *January*, when we're buried under feet of snow, just makes our mom surly. Really surly. And when she's surly, she's miserable to be around, trust us. :-P

    Please, if it's in your power, send us an early Spring! LOL!
