Ladybug, Ladybug

Today is that day in March when it hits 74 degrees and you're fooled into thinking "Winter is over!" I took a long walk, wearing short sleeves, with my littlest best buddy. We looked everywhere in the neighborhood for flowers. We found darn few.

When we got back to chez Ooh!PC it was clear that there would be some time spent in the sandbox. I took the opportunity to survey the side yard for signs of new life. Here's what I found.
New companions for the first bloom of last week.

An intrepid ladybug on one of the first maple blooms.

I had a hankering to quilt, but instead stayed outside and enjoyed the glorious weather and the happiness of watching my preschooler in the sandbox.

I took a walk without a jacket today but our long-term forecast is saying we may have snow flurries by Tuesday. BAH!

Love the photos!

Hi from Austria! Oh, thanks so much for sharing these beautiful photos - these pics sure do give me some hope that spring is just around the corner even though over here we still have snow and temperatures below zero...
