This winter was interesting in the snow category. We had an early snow that stayed, hiding some things that normally get put away in late fall. Then we got totally socked in at Christmas, so that it made no sense whatsoever to try to dig out the buried lights and decorations. In the past week we have had some gorgeous spring-like weather, much earlier than usual, unearthing an interesting array of decor in the neighborhood. Amazing how fast three feet of snow can melt! But also amazing how fast the neighbors get out and clean up when it does. Here's what remained on our walk yesterday.
These people found their discarded Christmas tree.
These people found their driveway...a little too late.
Here, look closer:
These people live on the shady side of the street,
but even so they have managed to rediscover their patriotism.
And we were finally able to take the lights off our shrubs.
Welcome spring! We hope you are really here to stay.
But we'll believe it along about Memorial Day.
