Warm here in Indianapolis too. I just got a shipment notice. It would be the roses for the new hedge. I wasn't expecting those for at least another three weeks. Guess I'll have to take Friday off so I can start to get the little dears into the ground. Not sure I'm mentally ready for this. I'm still in my "it's winter indoor" mindset.

It was EIGHTY today in the midatlantic. Holy smokes - 40 degrees above normal, that. We never got winter this year, and it's creepy.

Because this is the best thing thread, though, I should not use it for kvetching! Okay, so today's best thing is The Best Dog in the History of Ever. And a nice dinner. And my mom, whom I love so much. And the man who reminds me with gut-wrenching acuteness why I admire him even more than I like him. Which is rather a lot, really.

It was 70 yesterday and should be that way today. I ran outside with puppy for an hour, took a long nature walk, and then played frisbee. The only downside of the daylight savings time, is I don't get tired when it's still light outside. Whole sleep schedule is thrown off!

Glad you and puppy are enjoying the spring Brenna, I agree with you about the downside of longer daylight hours; it's now light at around 6.00 am, and we're not even into daylight saving yet - just under 2 weeks before our clocks go forward - so I'm dreading the lighter mornings. And the birds start singing at around 4.00 am - why??? Go back to sleep birdies!

A rather small thing for me today. All of my snow Crocuses are up and lovely, Daffodils on the south side of the house are trying to bloom. The Tulips that hibernated all last year are up, and for the first time since being planted two years ago one of my Early Snowdrops has bloomed. Made me feel good to see all the flowers in the sunshine.

I know, LoveHistory. I looked out the sunroom and have daffodils all over the yard. Miss Willow is showing that first touch of green along her branches, too. Went to get the paper and had a robin blasting in my ear and the sun wasn't even up yet. I love spring.

I saw some Robins recently and that was nice. Last year there was an oriole in the big tree out front every morning. Evenings he'd switch to the backyard. I always enjoyed hearing him sing. If he comes back this year I think I'll give him a name.

Ah that's lovely LH, what will you call him?

My crocuses and snowdrops are finished, the magnolia has loads of buds on it - which is good as last year we only had about 3 flowers - but my daffodils aren't showing any sign of flowering, which is worrying as they weren't very good last year, so I hope the snow we had in Feb hasn't damaged them.
