Shall we start calling you Taxdragon now, Taxy?
It's supposed to snow here tonight and the next couple days. I'm hoping for another miss.

78?! Where do get off, GG? lol
78... sheesh. I wouldn't know what to do if it got into the fifties.

GotGarlic,
I used to drive cars back and forth for the Snowbirds. My favourite times were in the spring, driving up the 95, popping along the 66 over to 81, watching the different flowers appearing with each trip. The forsythia, crocus, daffodils. Each week the next flowers would come out, but still repeating themselves as I drove north. Marvelous.

For whatever reason, when I originally signed up for YouTube, it wouldn't let me register as taxlady. TaxDragon (DragonTaxes in French) is my company name, so I used that. Then Google bought YouTube and I have two accounts with YouTube. But, TaxDragon is the one where I had already started storing lots of favourites.

Now you know why dragnlaw and I got along so well at our first meeting. We're both part dragon.

That sounds wonderful! I love spring flowers, too

It was wonderful, I enjoyed every trip. Long distance driving was my thing.

Only bad part was by the time I got to PA and NY there would be snow hanging around in the corners.... yech, and most often still slushy gunk at home.

taxy, were the birds chirping in the beginning of the video? I thought I heard one saying "what the heck, what the heck". It was pretty though. BTW, is Stirling feeling any better today? I hope so.

Addie, if you went out today you would have been blown away. If you have to go out when it's windy don't forget to put rocks in your pockets.

GG, the daffs are so pretty! You're way on your way to 160,000 daffs like this Ohio family: Celebrate Spring with a Daffodil Party | Midwest Living

Taxy, beautiful video! The snow is so pristine, I love it when it's so fluffy and white. So pretty!

GG...oh my goodness, your daffodils are some of the prettiest I've ever seen.

It's been around 80 here the past few days, but according to the weather reports it will be dropping down to the mid to high 60's towards the end of the week. I'll take it though, come summer I'll be wishing for this low again.

Cheryl, the roses are beautiful!!!

I need to get Mom to take pics of her peonies and hibiscus. I also need a pic of the Lilac grove.

I'm trying to decide what I am putting in my outside pots this year that will bake and die in the hot sun.
