A Weekend In The Country

The forsythia outside the library window has buds on it. You probably can't see them, but I've verified.

Not quite yet. Soon. I'm not psychologically prepared for the moment.

I'll put my wreath into its storage box in a week or two.

Weather report: Yucky. Drizzly rain, gray skies, wind.

Consequence: Dogs not at all interested in venturing out and when they do they must wait on the porch to be dried -- one after the other like the ladies they are. . .

A demain for the weekly round up mes trés, trés, trés chers amis.

I hope you're having a lovely weekend. (If you have snow, I'm jealous.)

Lovely view Tish! We are nowhere near Springtime here in Kansas City. No snow, frigid however! A good weekend to relax and read!

Gray and pouring rain in LA today. I love the sound of it, as we don't get much real weather here. Not sure if I feel like going out in it though. Our dogs, definitely won't.

I think your weather sounds divine. We're due for 60s and sunny skies today, and I'm perfectly miserable about it.

Your wreath is lovely! What's the hanging red stuff?

Preserved red berries maybe? I have no idea.

What a clever wreath! Love the "fringe." It's raining here too, and when our dogs decided they absolutely *must* go out at 4am, they looked outside and had second thoughts. They do not like the rain. Had to dry them off and put them in the kitchen afterward.

It is snowing here....finally!!!! The pups are out playing, and I will bundle up soon to take some pictures. I will continue my snow dance for you, my friend.

Don't be jealous of our snow. It's only 9 degrees right now, with a wind chill of one below. We've had about 8" of snow in the past week and I've spent three mornings shoveling. Well, it doesn't take that long to shovel, but it's a pain in the neck and now I have shoveler's wrist.

Your forsythia seems early to be budding.
Our snow is finally melting...
it's good because the fridge and larder are looking quite bare. I'll be bundling up, digging out the Volvo and making the trip to the market.

Your wreath is very pretty, I have never seen one that has cascading berries and frilly fringes mixed together. C'est tres chic!

Gray, rainy and 40 in Virginia - yuck. That wreath would make me happier, I think. Happy weekend.

Snowed in in Seattle for a week! A lot more snow than anyone needs. At least it provided endless inspiration for tomorrow's story on the blog! Funny how people never seem happy with what they have ;-) Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

I can understand your reluctance to put the wreath away.
Weather here is lovely today. 31deg C, blue skies, no wind! M. Louis is keen to go for a walk - loves the beach so he too will need a rubdown on our return.
Been away from my computer this week - time is too tight. Bonne semaine.
Bisous

Despite getting a bunch of snow dumped on us in Chicago, it was a cold but lovely day here. Tomorrow will be warm enough to start melting some of that new snow.

Enjoy your weekend!

We had a beautiful couple of snowy days this week, but woke up this morning to green lawns once again - rain and wind in the night melted all the white stuff.

I hope your weekend is fantastique!
