signs of spring

You know it's coming. There are telltale signs:

Number one: The brilliant sun pouring in through every window illuminates dust bunnies multiplying in all the corners of the house

Number two: The buds on the trees are about to burst into bloom at any moment

Number three: Mosses glowing an unearthly shade of green coat every rock in sight

Number four: You trip over dogs basking in the sun on your lawn

Number five: Leprechauns appear in your kitchen

Number six: Spring taps you on the shoulder and says: "I'm here!"

happy spring!

I found 5 dust bunnies just like yours in every room in our flat this morning. You say it is a sign of Spring, I say it it a sinister invasion that will be the death of us all.

This is so great! My daughter and I enjoyed it. She especially liked the dogs with the hats!

Oh lovely! Our trees are doing the same... so are our dust bunnies but at least I don't FEED them you mad thing! Mind you I did find an old carrot down the back of the counter the other day...

I have dust rhinos. They travel in packs and do not like carrots.

That moss photo took my breath away -- the light is fantastic!

Happy spring, Miss Petunia!

That bunny is scarey!!

So glad spring is coming to all of you in the north. We've gone from bright and warm to grey, rainy and foggy and back again so many times since January that I don't know what season we're in!

Mmm, I just want to be a black dog lying in the grass....

Jane! Don't you know you're not supposed to feed the dust bunnies? It only encourages them. (As if they need encouraging to multiply!)
