usually the first sign here is the vultures returning to hinkley park. every year on march 15th like clockwork, vultures are sighted flying back. people have even made it to be a small festival to celebrate. i never went though because it's usually still way to cold out for me lol
ummm, middie, do you live at 1313 mockingbird lane?
(anyone? anyone? beuller?)
lmao no. it sure feels like it sometimes though. actually they call them buzzards. but they're one in the same bird of prey.

I do not know, my tea roses bloomed all winter, never had to cut them back. I was told as long as they had blooms on them to leave them alone, so I did.

2 dressed young squirrels (2 lbs.)
1 1/2 tsp. salt
Pepper
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 - 3/4 cup water
1 1/2 cups milk
1 tsp. grated onion (optional)

Wipe squirrel thoroughly with a damp cloth. Remove any hair and scent glands. Examine carefully to locate imbedded shot and remove with a sharp pointed knife. Wash thoroughly inside and out in warm water. Drain well and cut into serving pieces. (Never wash after cutting up.) Combine salt, pepper, and flour. Dredge meat and coat well. Heat shortening in a heavy skillet; brown meat slowly on all sides to a rich brown (about 15 minutes). Add 1/4 cup of water; cover tightly; reduce heat and simmer gently until tender (about 30 minutes). Add remaining water as needed.

Squirrel should be very tender when done. Remove squirrel to a hot platter; cover and keep hot. Blend any leftover seasoned flour into the fat remaining in skillet. Add milk gradually and cook until gravy boils and thickens, stirring constantly. Serve at once with squirrel. Add the grated onion for additional flavor, if desired. 4 servings.

I saw crocus, daffodils, iris, tulip, glads and the such, in small little pots at Trader Joe's over the week-end. Going back to get some for my garden as I forgot to plant the bulbs. They were only $2.49 a pot. Really cute miniature iris from Holland, as were the tulips.

I wish there were some Trader Joes in Florida.(sigh)

PolishedTopaz, the robins are here in Florida. We have had a relatively cold winter here, so our bulbs have just started coming up. No azalea buds yet, and our Crape Myrtles are still barren. Hopefully, by next month things will start to happen.

I went down to the Sacramento Valley, yesterday. That is where Marge/Dove lives. It was gorgeous. Green grass. The fruit trees are blooming. The conference center where I had my training had planted flowers. Sigh, I am so jealous.

Last weekend Trader Joe's had daffodils for 99 cents for 10. So, I bought two bunches. When I got home I put them in water and they started blooming a couple of day ago. My daffodil bulbs are still sleeping underground.
