Meltdown

Thanks everyone for your thoughts for me yesterday! I planned on coming back but I ended up pretty much resting the entire day. I feel better,,not tip top but better. Sadly, I will return to work today....Anyhow, yesterday was near 60 for Wisconsin. This is what we have now. The one thing about our meltdowns as exciting as they are...they end up exposing things like this. The discoloration on the grass is Genie's winter pee-pee stops. Of course you can still see my Christmas wreath..that was about a week ago almost entirely covered in snow and ice. If you enlarge the picture which I'm sure you wont want to when I tell you why...you can see a pile of Genie's poop....(YUCK) I hope you werent drinking coffee or eating when I said that.


Now this picture you might want to enlarge! This contains no droppings from my genie--this one contains the exciting part of the warm up. My crocus popped yesterday! You can see the tips just poking thru the ground. I think I might have 3! lolllll....I hope Tootsie stops by so she can see what an avid gardener I am NOT! Today its going to be in the 40's and rain., still a good day for these crocus to continue popping up.

16 Thanks for your comments!:

OH MY I enlarged the picture with the crocus and I found em---but I also found baldy's cigerette butt in there! YUCK. Another dreadful thing of the meltdown, all the junk I have to clean up from these slobs of mine.

I hate that yukky yellow lawn time between the almost end of winter and the not quite start of spring when it all looks like grey mush. But I too see the little crocus and here they come.

We're having your same weather! I hope the crocus is a sign of an early spring! :)

Ginger said...

That's pretty funny. We have a mess under our snow too, but it doesn't stay clear enough to clean it up. We got another storm and now everything is white again.
Glad you are feeling better.

Diane said...

Yay! I'm happy to hear you're feeling better! Love the shot of the crocus's peeping up. ♥

Spring is almost here!

I'm so glad you are feeling better. Maybe it was seeing the crocus and knowing Spring is almost here!!

Glad you are feeling better. We finally have snow today after a long warm spell. It will be gone in no time but we sure needed the moisture.

Cynthia said...

OK Dawnie,
I'm in Wisconsin and I didn't have anything popping up through the ground. I don't think that's fair. We were in the 50' and so I am assuming your a bit south of us. We're in the Western part of the state and now it sure looks ugly, a sloshy mess. And it is so dreary, I need some sun! Happy V- Day, Cindy

I wanted to come by here and thank you SO MUCH for the sweet things you said about our cabin over at Laurie's!! It is truly appreciated! L~

Sassy said...

It is always exciting to see new growth...this weather...wow...I guess the ground hog called it...we were in the 80's last week and then had snow on the Superstitions yesterday....crazy! You were so funny about my skid marks...I'll tell ya...probably had some after it was all done and said...LOL
