Foto Friday

Once again, it's Foto Friday. I said there would be more crocus pics, and just to prove that I'm not a liar ...

Spring Wonders

I guess this has to be the very last photo of the receding Anvilcloud glacier. It's all but gone now and will be completely melted long before the sun sets today. Aside from showing you one final shot of the glacier, I thought it clever to juxtapose snow and me in shorts in the same photo. Yes, it was that warm here yesterday. Once summer arrives, it's shorts and tees for me. Do you see the tulip plants? Nikki Dee does. They almost that tall under the snow two days ago. I know because I decapitated a few while trying to uncover them.



Nikki Dee visited while mom was attending to errands; she was her usual charming self ...



... and made a new friend.



Have a great weekend.

Yes i think we can safely take the long underwear off. I find it too hot, But I will refrain from complaining. A little warm rain and more sunshine and you will be getting the lawnmower out.

Put some fresh sand in the sandbox and let your granddaughter get a little dirty!

I am not big on flowers but I am happy to see my horseradish coming up.

Have a great day!

Great photos! Happy weekend to you and Cuppa. :)

When the glacier is gone, will you change your template to spring?

I'm THRILLED to see that big mountain of snow is finally gone! YAY for you :)

I love the shorts with the snow. It's funny how we get so excited when the weather is in the low twenties. To me, that's perfect weather!

Have a great weekend!

Your weather looks a lot better than ours and those photos are beautiful.
Nikki Dee has such a cute look on her face (by the door).

Your snow is finally gone... hooray! Nikki Dee is so sweet, and her new friend is almost as big as she is! Your third crocus shot with a closeup of the purple flowers is so clear and detailed. Wow!

I think you have a little actress on your hands, AC. She seems to love the camera and is adorable.

I see I am a little bit behind here... CONGRATULATIONS to Bat, way to go!

I liked the two pictures of you and your daughters very much, I seem to recall the one with the hats. I have two daughters also, and enjoy seeing little bits of me and each of them.

We have a few small glaciers left here, too, but they should be gone by the end of the weekend. Spring has truly arrived. Your crocuses prove it!

Hope you are feeling better and am looking forward to the spring banner on your blog.
