SEASONAL RENTALS~

As I left the comfort of my warm and cozy bed this Sunday morning...preparing to greet another cold winter's day... I began to think about Puxatawny Phil and his prediction of an early Spring...  Once downstairs I happened to notice Sadie Mae quietly staring out the living room window...  
what ya see Sadie Puss?... 
Oh my goodness... a future tenant checking out the housing accommodations here at Dog Trot Farm...
and getting the lay of the land...
 and lookie here..you know...perhaps there is some truth to the old
                                            ground hog's prediction...I for one sure hope so...

I live in Maryland, and late yesterday as I was trundling my wheelbarrow of stall shavings and manure out to the compost bins, I saw a snake. In February?? A friend tells me that in ancient Celtic tradition the snake was the prognosticator of spring, not the groundhog. I suppose he was lured from hibernation by the two days of 70 degree weather last week, and was seeking the warmth generated by the decomposition of the stall bedding. Still, it was quite a shock on a bitterly cold day.

We're in for a lot more rain and fog, but there are promising spears of green pushing up in the garden.

I saw robins this week too. I don't ever remember seeing them this early. Lets hope old Phil is right!

We seem to be having another winter without snow. If that is the way it has to be then I would rather skip right on into spring like the birds.

Flat Creek Farm said...

Yay!! Now that bluebird and robin (and your lovely Sadie Mae) say it all. Spring is indeed just around the corner. Yes, someone mentioned ordering seeds. I'd better get on that too! Have a great week! -Tammy

Julie I am afraid we are going to have Spring too early again this year and we will have a repeat of last summer. I don't think I can take it, we are still in a drought. We birds checking out the houses too and we had Robins all over the yard yesterday. Our daffies and crocus are coming up. Too early! Sweet Sadie Mae.

Janice said...

I, too, hope that Phil's prediction is correct. I noticed a bit of activity around my birdhouses yesterday. Yes, they are shopping around here in CA as well.

Farm Girl said...

I hope it is early for you too. I on the other hand am hoping it wrong. I am not ready for spring.
I love your new visitors though I hope they move right in.

Lots of green grass already here on the island. Guess we better put an order in for a new mower.

Prims By The Water said...

Oh I hope Spring will soon be here. Its has snowed here for the last 4 days. Wish our birdies would come back. Hope you are feeling better, Janice

From your fingers to God's ears, Julie! They're wanting 1'-2' of snow for us on Friday into Saturday...sure could use spring, it's been a long, housebound winter for me this year. Happy Spring dreams!! ~Vonnie
