Signs of Spring...

Hi!
It's SPRINGtime!
I do like Spring...
It just makes me springEEE & I, theBUSTER, love to
sniff the fine smells of spring. Snufffffffffffff----------------->

My little crocus , that me humomm and I planted last fall, are popping up all over the yard.


I'm very serious about enjoying SPRING...did I say that it's my favorite time of year? .....other then the snow time --- and the swimming time --- and well, maybe, I should say it's ONE of my
very favorite times of the year.
I found a purple crocus to show you!
It's Ms. Persephone's favorite color...sort of a periwinkle color -- like her blanket w/the green stars.

Hey -- my garden is color co-ordinated w/ Sephie's bedroom!
Do you know the story of Ms. Persephone? She comes back from the underworld, aka Hades, in the Springtime.. she's a goddess. We were born on April 13th so the humomm thought it would be appropriate (what's w/these big words anyhow?)
to name her-- that would be my sister--Persephone!


O.K. I'm out on the deck -- just relaxing and enjoying the sun on my back, contemplating.
It's a Zen kinda thing... notice the placement of the paws....very much in line with the angle of the ears (very sharp hearing in those ears).

Contemplating is a good past time.
I enjoy contemplating...
anyhow to get back to what I'm contemplating!
I've been thinking about these little furry "things".... like the picture below....these little "buds"... not to be confused with my "buddy" so and so..
but "buds" that hang on trees and plants...they are doing all sorts of stuff inside those little "jackets" they wear... I just can't wait to see what's gonna pop out of that bud. The humomm sez it's a MAGnolia.. sort of like maggie's name....
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm still contemplating.............................................


Sniff Sniff....hmmmmmmmmmmmm andromeda....eeensey weeeensey bells... with a great big
smell. Aren't they cute little bells?
I think I'll just sit here and snifffffff some more. My nose will never be the same. Spring time is cool.

Hi... I'm theBUSTER'S avatar...he's outside enjoying the sniffs of spring and the sunshine and contemplating and I'm in here writing, for him, on his blog.

He really wanted me to tell you that he's so very happy it's SPRINGtime
and
that the sun is out and very nice
and....
when he's done contemplating he'll be back to read the blog.
But
he needs some "down" time to enjoy his flower gardens...
pseudo Buster here -- signing off for now.
theBUSTER will return sooooon I'm sure. He just
can not stay away from his Blog Buddies for very long.
So go out and contemplate for a little while and enjoy the day.

We are excited about Spring, too...or at least, our people are. The first Hummingbird arrived yesterday and Mom almost killed herself running to the basement to tell Dad. We also have a family of black-capped Chickadees that are nesting in one of our bird houses. Our people watch them for hours. We don't get it...we think they would make a very small snack!

Aire-hugs,

Hey, Buster!

You really got my girl's attention with all of those juicy snout photos of you sniffing and contemplating. Obviously, you have a rich inner life and olfactory-centered life too!

We just read your haiku, and I almost busted a GUT! You know, I've been known to write haiku in my day (before I was the thesis Nazi), and anything that cracks my girl up and makes her belly laugh is okay by me.

Enjoy the spring. I might just miss it, but should come up for aire by May!

Goober love & smooches,
Stanley

Well it aint springtime here. The leaves are starting to change colour and it's cooling right down...yep it's Autumn and we love it. We do love those beautiful flowers growing in your garden especially the purple one.
