Lena--can you believe we still have (some) snow on the ground around our house...the spots that don't get the good sunlight! My DH was cleaning up the yard today--while the furnace guy came out for an emergency visit!!! Yes, our furnace was spewing dark smoke out of the chimney and a neighbor noticed...alerted us! She went as far as coming into the basement to ck on the furnace while we were not home! Good neighbor!
Anyway, all is well in whoville--and we were talking about planting some flowers around the yard--this is not my forte (DD wants to host a garden this summer)...I recommended places where we need a lil' color--plus, keeping it safe from the dogs in the neighborhood. So, you could say we are STARTING to think about spring here!
