Is spring about to get sprung?

It's pretty warm here at the moment, and today I noticed that the daffodils have started to push their way up out of the ground, and catkins are appearing on the willow in my front yard. Also, my neighbour's magnolia tree has tiny flower buds on its branches. Could an early spring be just around the corner, or is it just a trick? Will February or March bring icy Winter weather? I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Even though grass isn't supposed to grow during the Winter, I could swear ours is growing very very slowly. I notice this because I'm looking after a rabbit, and I move her run regularly so that she has fresh grass to hop about on and eat. I've noticed that the grass she's eaten down short has grown progressively, and you can see by the length of the grass where she has been most recently.

Good Afternoon Dabrah,
"THANK YOU" for the kind comment for my today's post. My DH said we will just get ahead and in the next couple of weeks take our business to another Bank. There is a Bank in my hometown, about 12 miles from where we live at now, and I have a Cousin who is like an Assistant Vice-President. This Bank my Parents have done business with for years and haven't had any trouble from them. Our local Bank Manager, I don't care too much for her either. She is one of those "Better than thou" sort of person. I just don't like to associate or even talk to those kind of people. After another cold blast tonight and possible freezing rain on Friday, it is suppose to get up into the 60's here by Sunday and Monday. Spring may be just around the corner. Take care my friend and have a great evening. May God Bless You and Yours. Stop by again tomorrow if you have time. I'm going to share another recipe.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.

That's interesting, Dabrah, about you seeing the grass grow. I didn't know grass grew in the winter either. My hubby doesn't have to mow in the winter, but I guess there are exceptions to everything.

Hi Dabrah,

We are having bone chilling temperatures here in Missouri. The temperatures are in single digits and the wind chill factors will be in the negative digits. Nothing is growing around here, except; our power bills. LOL
