That old furry guy is back at it today, with a roar that is off the decibel level chart. After enjoying a week full of the soft sounds of spring, we had a rather rude awakening this morning. When we rolled out from under our warm blankets we discovered that thick snow blanketed our little town and thicker blankets yet were being laid down. Not only was fresh snow still falling, but it was being whipped around by rather ferocious winds. Roar, Growl, Snarl! Here it is noon, and the lion's temper tantrum shows no sign of letting up yet. Sigh! My poor ears.
My spring decorations don't seem to be inspiring Mother Nature in her battle with that old lion today, but they are lifting my spirits nonetheless. The hyacinth fills the house with the aroma of spring, and flowers and butterflies brighten corners here and there.
I couldn't resist this little charmer when I saw her in the store the other day. Don't you just love her purse Sare? She looked so cute all decked out in her new spring duds, and I had just the right spot for her in my house, so she came home with me. When I took down my winter decorations I had a bare spot where Benmar's gift had stood all winter and this little gal fills that space perfectly now.
Let the lion roar outside, I have spring bursting out all over here inside, and that is a good thing.
