GG, Stirling was feeling a bit better yesterday 'cause he has learned what movements hurt. I don't know how he's doing today. He's getting any sleep he can any time he can get it.

Cheryl, gorgeous flowers. What are the little purple ones?......
Taxy, those are vinca. Thank you for asking. They do really well here. I hope Stirling is doing better.

Finally, I can see more ground than snow out our windows! But another week of weird weather ahead. Snow likely Wednesday. Could be a dusting, could be two feet. Depends on which way the wind blows. Meanwhile, most are predicting around 60 for Saturday, but as taxy's weather video stated, that would be considered a "Plus One!" day!

27F...no wind, but that could change. Rain planned for most of the week.

Woke up to 26F with a light dusting of snow. It got up to the mid 30's.

It's a rather blustery, cold day for January. The fact that it's occurring in March makes it a real pain in the neck. The temperature and the wind gust speeds are almost the same! 26 degrees/25 MPH gusts. We didn't think to bring our empty 30-gallon trash can into the garage last night. Had to nab the bottom from where the grass meets the driveway. Found the lid in the garden...this time that cluster of brambles was there for a good reason. Both parts are now hiding in the garage.

Wow, sounds like it's windy just about everywhere....nasty day here today. Cold (for here), in the mid 60's and the wind is blowing to beat all. 55 MPH gusts, sand and dirt blowing everywhere. Pinecones keep falling off the trees and bouncing off the roof...kind of noisy.

Just under the freezing mark now, but supposed to stay above freezing for the next week. Let the flooding begin.
For some reason I have thoughts of Hammy Hamster in my head.

It's not too, too cold here, but I'm trying not to think about the weather until Spring arrives.

My favorite flower. One year my husband was coming home from a fishing trip. As he left Maverick Subway station, there was a vendor selling them outside the station. He bought two bunches for me. When he got home he gave each of the kids money to go down and buy him out. I had quite a large bouquet. They were beautiful. I still see them in my mind. One of the benefits of living in Western Washington is at this time of year you see them every where. You are so fortunate.
