Lookin' for spring


After a gorgeous weekend with sunny skies and temperatures in the 60's, it's back to the 30's (and below) with another chance of snow tonight.
It's definitely been a long winter.
Even the animals are on the lookout for spring.


"Do you see anything?"



"No... maybe it went that way..."



"Wait- I think I see something!"



"Harrrumph... false alarm."
(Walks away in disgust.)



"Don't even think about looking for spring in here!"



Smokey thinks he might have caught of whiff of spring...
(notice his "snow socks"...)



No, Smokey- that's just your doggie breath.
Hope some of you are starting to see Spring at your place!

  2. Great post. Those bantam hens look like mine, but mine are mutt birds. That silkie sure didn't see spring. I often wonder how they can see anything at all! My poor blue rooster....and my splash hen lost an eye as a chick. Poor Smokey. We all are ready for Spring. Please hurry!

  6. No spring here either. But I'm trying to something in the house with either silk flowers or maybe a springy quilt table topper. I gotta do something. OH, I'm planing my herb garden inside today. YOu'll laugh, I put my garden hat beside the tray where I have my little seedlings just to cheer me on. A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do!
    Cute, Cute, Cute pictures.

  8. Doesn't look like we're getting any spring here for a while either. Snow forecast for tonight, tomorrow and possibly next week :( Last weekend was wonderful, but Mother Nature was just teasing us!

  9. Oh, Sweetie, there is still so much snow around here, we may never see the ground again.....and when we do, there will be MUD and high water. They say we've had 3 feet of snow this winter. All I know for sure is it's still here and it's still cold.......We may have to buy more LP before it's over. We've never had to buy a second tank of gas!
    You have some green there. I say enjoy it for all of us that have been foresaken!

  10. Very cute! Spring will come. We were spoiled with a few days of sunshine and the blooming of daffodils, now....back to gray skies and rain. Anticipation.....

  11. Sunday here in GA it was 67* but today it's rainy and cold again. We are beginning to see jonquils in some yards opening up though. I love your sweet pets looking for Spring and that first photo through your door is beautiful! Stay warm!

  14. I thought it was spring, too, Paula! We saw some near 70 degrees and it snowed here all day - didn't stick, but it was sure pretty. This has been the wildest winter weather ever! In 30+ years!

  19. Cute post!! No sign of spring here either. But I do see that the weather pattern we've been in is brekaing up some. So it won't be long.

  20. We had springlike weather roll in here for a few days, too, but it's 18 degrees outside this morning...BRRR! Will warmer weather ever return? I'm beginning to wonder! Thank you so much for the goodies you sent me, Paula...I'll be posting about them tomorrow! Have a super day!

  21. What a laugh you gave me this morning.Loved the photos of your animals. I have never seen a chicken like that before how cute.
    We have not had a 60 degree day since......I can't remember??
    It is 11 here today and is going to have chances of more snow tonight and through the weekend.
    Thanks for stopping by and leaving a sweet comment.

  22. Oh, OH, OH!!
    If you see some could you please send it to me...my address is FINDLEY LAKE, NY and I need as much as you can send...Time to drag out some seeds and make my own spring!!

  23. Oh Paula, I wish I could send you some of our spring weather! It's been in the mid 60's this week. Of course, it's only Feb., so I know we have more cold weather in store for us, but we don't get your kind of cold. I loved the pictures of all of your sweet farm animals!
    Blessings,
    Marcia

  24. I can't get enough of your animals. Love your sense of humor, too.

  25. Miss Paula,
    You're so funny! The pictures you chose were just perfect!

    The weatherman said rain/snow showers for tomorrow - but he said that for Tuesday, too. Guess what? We got nothing. Just too cold to do anything, that's all...

    Thanks for the offer of advice - I sure need it! Are you sure we don't need to wring any chicken necks? Maybe just one? LOL We've got a he/she conundrum over here. ??? The cat food is helping their tempers, somewhat, but I think they're so cold - they don't want to fight as much? They're still under a tight watch, though.
    Those Aracaunas are a mess!

    Hope that you'll see spring, soon!
    Many Blessings,
    Julie

  29. My dear, that was a great post, I begin to wonder if this is one of those old fashoined winters that will last up to June... LOL

    We are getting dumped on again and expecting 30 MPH winds to boot. I'm so dreaming of seeing my little flowers poke their heads above the ground.

    Please bring Spring,
    Blessings, Mel

  30. Nothing SPRINGING UP over here! More snow predictions yet, and I'm still having to gather eggs several times a day to avoid EXPLOSIVE ones!
