Winter has been hard

by Kay~Kacey on 3/11/2009

I thought I’d better go out and investigate a bit. (okay, okay, I was looking for green. I confess.) But what I found was some of the ravages of winter.

It would seem that the flower pots did not fare well this winter.

broken-flower-pot

They didn’t fare well at all. Sigh.

The finches don’t think it’s spring yet either.

We had such a nice, brief glimpse of spring last weekend. I’m not liking the return to winter. Not. At. All.

I might have been wrong.

by Kay~Kacey on 3/8/2009

I know, I know…amazing, huh? But I might have been wrong. Don’t tell SuperGuy though! I’ll never hear the end of it.

Look what I found outside my front door!

purple-flower-groundcover

A darling purple flower. Yes, in the ground cover that I’ve begged SuperGuy to pull out. We even had a ground cover poll in hopes to convince SuperGuy that it had to go, remember that? (You guys voted that if he kept it he should buy me camera stuff… :love: Love ‘ya guys!)

Anyway, it’s starting to fill in again. (which will annoy me later this spring when it chokes out my daffodils and tulips…but I digress…) But for now, it has pretty little purple flowers on it. I love anything with color this time of year!

Yes, if SuperGuy see this he’s going to say “I told you so.” Sigh. Hate that. :mad2:

In other news. I updated the WordPress plugin for the polls that I use on this blog. I broke all the old polls. :angry: They changed something in the code to make it compatible with something in the newer versions of WordPress. I had to go back and find each poll, edit the post, and manually change the code for each poll.  Took forever. :wallbash: I was exhausted and forced to go sit down and have a Blue Moon. :beer: The things I do for you guys. :crazy: ( I appear to be on a smilie roll today… :coffee2: )

(If you missed yesterday’s post, go hop back and read it. I announced the theme for the photo of the month contest for March).
