Day 60

Congratulations! Day 60 - another milestone! (for me)

Spring has sprung! I finally see some signs. It's been a harsh beginning for some of my little plants, but I'm not really too knowledgeable when it comes to what these are all called. I thought it would be fun to go see if anything is sprouting there now that the snow is finally gone.. and to my amazement, look what I found! I wanted to take a picture each day to see how much they've grown, so after my 365 photo, I will be just adding them for my entertainment. :)

So excited to see the basketball hoop made it through these crazy last few months! I almost thought it would blow away at the 60+ mph winds, but here it stands victorious! I just liked how it stood up tall and proud, and could almost here the kids laughing and playing ball again outside. There is now hope it is almost springtime! A little gloomy skies, but all in all, a nice day today!

These are fabulous! Love the angle of the first one! I also like the second one with the daffodils sprouting against the dead brown leaves.

LOVE these sprouting pictures. Definitely post the progression of the daffodils. Make a collage at the end, I absolutely love them. They had a challenge like this on CM and it was so cool to see everyone's photos. I might have to figure out something to do too. Thanks for the inspiration! :)

Spring is in the air, finally! We're alittle behind here. Not many buds yet. But I can't wait.
