The girls had a break from their winter icy confinement today. The temperature was well above freezing. Green showed through on the lawn. It was wet and mucky and not good for scratching, but fine for a bit of walking around.
Much of the yard looked like this. Here Blackie tippy-toes through the snow and slippery-frozen grass.
But, the adventurous girls made their way out to the Chinese Beech Tree (remind me to show you a photo this summer – lovely!) They were able to scratch in the looser dirt of the perennial bed.
It’s not springtime yet. The latest weather forecast says that two storm systems are moving in tonight and by Tuesday morning we should have another foot of snow on the ground. Well, it was nice to have a respite, however brief.
