A taste of spring!

Well! This has to be the most pleasant St. Patrick's Day in Cleveland's recorded history! They always have a parade downtown, often in the most dreadful conditions - ice, rain, snow. Today was perfect parade weather - sunny and 65 degrees F. Nice! I didn't actually go to the parade, I went to work, but when I came home Larry and I sat outside in short sleeves. Nice!

The crocuses are poking their brave little faces out of last falls dried up leaves.
They are brave little things - they survive snow - lots of snow, and only wither when it gets too warm.

Our bulletin board at work needs some spring influence. I can't quite decide what to do, but green seems to be the prevailing spring color here.

I have another bigger project I'm working on, but it's not ready to be blogged yet. These aren't either really - they're just ideas so far.
What a delight to have such a lovely day! I hope yours was lovely as well.

Hi Diana, happy belated St Patrick's day. I was disappointed when I forgot to mention it in my blog.

I love your photos and especially the one of you. How I wish I could come and sit down with you and have a chat.
Its nice to hear spring is on the way for you.

It's amazing what a relief some nice warm sunny weather is after these past few months of cold, gray, and wet... thanks for the Spring flowers which can't help but cause Spring SMILES !

Mmmm, got a big glass of ice water right beside me, Miss Ginny.

Thanks, Owen, I'm glad you like the flowers. Crocusus are amazingly resiliant. I had to scrape ice off the car the same day we were out in short sleeves much later. Crocuses seem to thrive on ice!

Diana, I feel like we are very lucky to be having so many wonderful days in March. So much of the time it is cold and snowy here clear into April so I have really been enjoying this year's Spring.
