Another week for very strange weather. We had a hard freeze that actually froze the hummingbird nectar. I was quite worried about our little visitors and was delighted to see them return with the warming sun. I can't recall a spring in which we have turned the heat on and off so frequently.
Our Lucy loves it when the weather is cool and brisk. She especially loves to run. Fortunately we have several places in which she can run off lead. And run she does.

While Lucy is a very active dog, she is also skilled at relaxation. She is particularly fond of finding convenient little pillows for her head. At a given time she might rest her head on a chair rung, or on the stone hearth. And if you happen to kick off your shoes? Well Lucy is just fine using them too.
Head on shoes
Can you believe I'm taking yet another blogging break? Our daughter is coming to visit for the week and so I won't be posting for at least a week. I hope we have good weather because we have many places to go and things to see. But we won't let the weather stop us from having a good time.
This quote by British poet Thomas Blackburn seems quite appropriate. It is from his verse, "An Easter Hymn"
Awake, thou wintry earth
Fling off thy sadness
Fair vernal flowers laugh forth
Your ancient gladness.
HAVE A WONDERFUL EASTER WEEKEND, EVERYONE. EVEN IF YOU DON'T CELEBRATE THE RELIGIOUS OCCASION, YOU CAN STILL ENJOY THE CANDY.
