Spring has sprung here in Minnesnowta. Just two weeks ago, we had nine inches of wet, heavy snow but it is long gone. Of course, this is Minnesnowta, which means there is still a chance for more snow. We took a nice long walk the other day when it was around seventy five degrees out. I have to say, I miss the cold weather as it feels way too warm in my furs!
Some of the trees are getting their buds on. It’s crazy amazing how fast this happens this time of year!
We love to walk in the woods, but we also make sure we are covered so those nasty ticks don’t try to make us their new home! Mom actually found a tick in the middle of our snowstorm two weeks ago. Those rotten things are far too hearty! Who expects to bring in a tick in a snowstorm?
All the brown fall leaves are still laying all over the ground. Depending on where you take a photo, one might think it is actually a photo taken in the fall, not in April.
The green plants are not shy and they are busy rapidly pushing themselves up through the dirt and layers of dead leaves. Soon there will be little flowers.
I think because I’m so close to the ground, and the asphalt, the heat really gets to me fast. If you are a Facebook friend, you may have seen this photo I posted the other day. My tongue, as always, tells it all. Far too warm out for me!
Oh boy, look! The snowball bushes are even starting to get their new leaves. We love their big flowers later in the season, and they also look great dried out in the wintertime.
Sometimes we have to find a bench and take a short rest. It’s not easy being us, always on the go with our mom. Isn’t it funny how both of our tongues kind of match?
What is the speed bump? Just when you think spring has sprung for real, the weather people, who are often wrong, and we hope they are this time, are saying plowable snow tomorrow afternoon. We have a big sports weekend, so there is no time for snow! Hopefully it won’t be too bad, or we will manage to avoid it completely. It is Minnesnowta, so we are not surprised, just not too happy. Such a waste of good snow this time of year!
