Not sure what is up with all those fuzzy dots - probably the gazillion dust particles I kicked up while cleaning. And on that subject, may I say I *love* my Swiffer WetJet?
My friend Asami had emailed me the day before to ask if we wanted to go to the zoo today, and I countered with a picnic, then the zoo. And what did we find at the picnic park? That's right, Ter - cherry blossoms! Look at them and weep, my snowbound sister :)
They are just starting to bloom here and I imagine that in a week or two we will be in a pink wonderland. Here's a pic of Asami's cutie-patootie son Ray pointing out the hyacinths we saw in bloom at the zoo:
And Willow enjoying the swings afterward:
I know she is big enough to do this without the baby apparatus, but this is the swing she likes to use. She just freaks out when she wants to get off and do something else and can't without someone's help.
And another new flower...
There are daffodils galore around here now, but these were the first tulips I saw blooming. I love spring flowers! We didn't get to go to the Philadelphia Flower Show this year because of all the moving and packing, so I will have to make the most of this last blooming (pun intended) Spring.
