Has Spring Sprung?

Sure hope so and hope we don't have a freeze or snow storm in March. Many of my daffodils have flowered, numerous crocus started blooming last week, and yesterday even saw a couple flowers on my forsythia bush.
There are still many daffodils left to bloom and they manage to come up even thru the many leaves which haven't been raked up.  The property is just too large for me to rake up all the leaves, plus the trash men won't take them.  I tried putting a fair amount in my trash container once and they weren't taken away.  They left a note saying I needed to find the proper facility which takes yard waste.  Now imagine that.... they won't take leaves which will decompose into soil yet they will haul away animal feces tied in a plastic bag and tossed in the trash.  Makes no sense.
Today I must cut Ben's backyard and mulch up the remainder of the leaves which haven't been raked up and moved elsewhere.  Am tired of raking and hauling the leaves further into the woods so will try mulching with the mower as Ben needs his yard to be tidy.
Am slowly working on Magdalena's Goat and this is the mess which surrounds me as I hook.  Perhaps later today I'll be able to pull some loops.  But right now I've got to see if my mower will start AND gather some vinyl siding so a worker can apply that to my shed after a new roof is put on it.

Happy Saturday.



  1. Hi Saundra,
    Sounds like a busy day for you!! Where are the "Yard Elves" when you need them? Love those daffodils! I have an early March Birthday so I have always been partial to them since the bloom right around that time!! Hope you can get some hooking time in between all of your yard duty!
    Heart Hugs~

  2. 75* here yesterday and today cold, windy and a few snowflakes. No mowing here :(
    We do make a hooking mess, don't we?
    Hugs :)

  3. While it has been very spring like here we are still up to our knees in snow.

  4. Evening, what nice weather your having, still white with snow here...enjoy the nice days, Francine.

  5. The daffodils are blooming here, but we are expecting a very hard freeze by morning.
    Your pictures are very pretty.
    I always try to mulch down the leaves in the fall.
    Otherwise they are just too much and everywhere by spring.
    Hope you got them taken care of.

  6. A busy day, but hopefully you had beautiful weather for it!!
