Just had to tell you that I saw a robin the other day & that my dad has some daffodils just breaking through the ground.  Thought White Beard & Palady would be glad to hear that we are seeing some signs of spring in Ohio!

I live in the same general part of the state White Beard does and we had mid to upper 40's yesterday, suppose to be close to 50 today and tomorrow with decent sunshine. While we have a good chance of rain from Sunday on next week the highs are suppose to be in the low to possible mid 50's all week. Definitely early spring like weather.

I was out with the family yesterday, all day, trying to find a decent used vehicle for my wife and from about 10 am on it was really, really nice.

Jag I have daffodils, hyacinths & crocus, and Carolina Jasmin in full bloom. I noticed the other day that the trees are starting to bud out, so spring is here in Tx. But, I need to find a mesquite tree and see if it is blooming. If it is blooming then we are in spring, if not more winter. It seems early for my flowers to be blooming.

We here in Kansas are suppose to have near 68 degree weather today and tomorrow and I was looking at my poor brown garden yesterday and it looks like my clematis vines are finally popping out of the ground.

Halaluah looks like Spring is on its way!!!!! Along with tornado weather and thunderstorms to boot LOL.

68 degrees, I can't wait. My birthday is March 15th and I've seen it both ways. I'm hoping my birthday present is weather warm enough to open the windows & top on the car and feel the sunshine on me. I may even whoop it up and drink a beer. Don't tell my PM doctor or the police!!!

Straydog, I would love to be able to grow Jasmine here. It smells so good. Scarred I have never understood why someone would live in Tornado alley. My husband is a big weather channel fanatic and your area gets the worst weather.

Jim, last spring we were used vehicle shopping and my husband is a VW lover but we thought we'd buy American to help the economy. When we started looking at vehicles though it seemed that most of the American made vehicles had foreign made engines. Not a good thing in my husbands eyes. My husband had a VW passat that had gotten over 300,000 miles on it until the body gave out. Hence, we ended up buying another Passat with over 100,000 on the engine and it is still running like a charm.

You have daffodils???? smhair I am so jealous! And I'm going to get my binoculars out and hunt for a robin, but I fear it's still too "chilly" here for them. That frozen Lake Erie sitting across the street from me keeps it colder right here, but we are supposed to get highs around 40 this weekend, which is like a heat wave to me! And there's been SUN! SUN! shocked I thought for sure it was gone forever! LOL

Jasmine - I love the smell. Would have no clue how to grow it anyway! rolleyes Animals I'm great with, plants...not so much! smilewinkgrin

Here's a virtual toast to spring! yeah

On Monday I rescued a Blue Jay that must have flown into a car window. It was a gorgeous bird -- made me think of spring. I brought him to the vet, but he didn't make it sad.

I had a flock of robins in my yard yesterday. about 11 of them. What a sight. I had never seen a flock before always just one or two.
Several years ago someone told me she had seen a flock of robins. I do think it's rare.
PaLady, I'll send some your way. I'm in Maryland so it won't be long for them to get up there. HaHa
