  9. Your dog is so cute. We, too, have spring bulbs popping up and growing more and more each day...although winter isn't harsh here. Still, it's so exciting.

    I see you enjoy link-ups....the title of your posts this week made me think of my friend's link-up "Life Through the Lens". She posts each Wednesday and can be found here if you are interested... http://foursimplyliving.com/

  13. Poor puppy! So far just chilly sunshine down here...think you're supposed to get it a bit worse than us on the coast :-( I LOVE the shots of the crocus "buds" pushing through this frozen, icy ground! I am in awe, every spring, watching buds, stems....all of it....find their way back! So many life lessons!! Thanks for linking up!

  17. You have buds coming up? Hopefully were done with snow in the Boston area, and you'll have some lovely blossoms!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Great to see the spring bulbs and that it is still growing despite the ice around.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I am sure the dog will be as brave as the bulbs biting the bulet and rearing their pointed heads triumphantly through the cold snow

    ReplyDelete
  20. Good on them! Those crocus bulbs deserve an extra dose of fertiliser for having the courage to burst through regardless. I feel for you (and Art -muse dog) with all that shovelling, I can only hope it is keeping you fit!

  25. New life peeping out beneath a wintry blanket, waiting to show the world the promises of a better tomorrow are on the loom helping us to fare the blahness of the last days of the coldness. Great to have you hop over this morning! ;) Keep warm, Carol!

  34. I can't tell you how excited I am to see the green poking through… up here there is still so much snow on the ground, but I suspect there may be some little shoots very close to the surface below the ice and snow.

  53. Awesome post ... your haiku are gems.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Your Haiku thoughts are beautiful. Be patient, Spring will come when Mother Nature tires of her antics. You are not really going to make poor art muse dog shovel snow, are you? :)

    ReplyDelete
