Spring Has Sprung at the Wayfarer!

Alright, after our short winter two weeks ago, it’s now officially spring and to my surprise, the daffodils are blooming already.
Yes, yes, only one or two so far but pretty unusual nonetheless.

!Excuse me!

It is only March 20th.  Our sweet daffodils don’t bloom until mid May.
What will this mean in the way of summer weather?  Maybe I should go ahead trust that this will be one of those summers that comes along only once in a blue moon.

Happy Spring everyone!

Winter Storm 2012

Having taken another long break, due partially to having misplaced my camera again…

I am here today, finally, to show you some amazing pictures.  Until yesterday, we didn’t have enough snow all winter to make a decent snowball.

But!! Friday oh Friday, after the daffodils had already put out some feelers and the lilacs shown some buds, it snowed and snowed and snowed.

The neighbors down in Elberta called to tell me that their house is on fire and that they are coming over to make sure their 80 some year old mom, 18-year-old son and Wally the dog would be safe.  And that’s where I got a glimpse of the devastation around our house.

Without further ado, pictures:

This morning there was no snow anywhere to be seen. 

I don’t have a good picture but some of the pine trees in the front yard have lost all their north facing branches.  It looks like someone sliced them off.

Having said all that, I am very sad for all the people in Indiana and Kentucky that have had much devastation and loss of life.
