Spring in the Air


Is the spring coming?

Mr. Bowie turned to the sunlight and shook his grey head. And whispered to me “Winter is dead.”

A.A. Milne, When We Were Young


Guess it is time to call the gardener…

  1. Eindelijk he!!! Vanmorgen was de eerste dag sinds lang dat het bijna licht was toen ik op het werk aankwam :-). Oohh, wat verlangen we toch naar de eerste keer dat het 16 graden is…

    • Maar amai die regen die hier na de middag is gevallen… Ik heb toch het gevoel dat we de goede richting aan ‘t gaan zijn. Binnenkort zit ik ‘s morgens buiten mijn krant te lezen… 🙂

  2. Spring is so far from springing here in Mississippi that it isn’t even on the long view radar. Mr. Bowie is a lovely moggie.

    • Thank you, Pam and Sam. Mr. Bowie told me spring will arrive in Virginia very soon. Please be patient…

    • Thank you! I can’t wait to have breakfast and read the newspaper outside… But I guess we have to be patient…

  3. What a beautiful photo of Mr.Bowie. He gives us an idea of the sunshine and warmth in our near future.
    I thought the video of the lazy cat delightful. It “made” my day.

  4. I am not waiting for the Virginia weather to decide, I am starting my garden indoors. In the meantime I will look at that lovely picture of Mr. Bowie and feel warm.

    • That is a very good idea, Angela. Spring will arrive very soon inside your house!
      Glad you liked the picture! Mr. Bowie says “Meow!”

  5. Mr.Bowie is truly enjoying his spring sunshine. Here in Southern California it had snow at the beach!!! Yes. At night Moshu is snuggling under my 4 layers of blankets and purring so loud that I can’t sleep. Oh well, it’s always most important that the Cat is happy

    • What…?? Snow at the beach!?! That’s a nightmare… Thank goodness the cat is happy… A happy cat = a happy human! 🙂

  6. Glad to see Spring coming somewhere, Mr. Bowie. Here in NW Arkansas, we’ve got snow on the ground and more coming tomorrow. I know — you don’t want to hear it. Bring out the espresso and cat treats! ♥

      • The snow has melted now and Spring is on the way. Pretty soon “they” say that these stark winter woods will burst forth in greeny leaf. Sure doesn’t look like that today. I’ll wait for the surprise. Peace, Alia

  7. Weeds are flowers too, once you get to know them. A. A. Milne

    No need for a gardener, It’s an excellent hide out for Mr Bowie. Plus they match his eyes 😀 Nice shot Herman! x B

    • Thank you, Boomdee.
      I will tell the gardener to stay away from that hide out, Mr. Bowie will be pleased…

  8. Spring can’t come soon enough this year. Normally I don’t long for it as I like winter but this one has been a particularly bitter one for more than one reason. Unseasonably cold, terribly cold. Many animals and even people have died because of it and we have been under extreme cold warnings every week even here in Windsor, which was unheard of. Of course, if I were in Ottawa, Spring wouldn’t show her face for at least another month. But then again, if I were in Ottawa, Satchie wouldn’t be missing. Please give Mr. Bowie a big hug and a kiss for me.
