It is time for spring

It is a lovely spring day to day in Minnesota.  Finally!  I have been thinking for a few weeks that if I shoveled away the snow I might find some tulips pushing through the dirt despite the cold.  Today I looked out and discovered they hadn't just pushed through the dirt, they have now pushed through the snow.

Of course I pushed aside some leaves near our grill and found out that the weeds have also arrived.  Why are they always so much more enthusiastic and resilient than the stuff I actually want?

This picture was taken on April 8th last year.  Not sure I will even see this by May 8th this year.

But who knows, upper 70's in our forecast.  My optimistic attitude is at an all time high today

Happy Spring!.
