All right. Maybe it’s just me. Maybe it’s been far too long since I’ve been on the patio. Maybe it’s been too long since I’ve had the fluttering birds around me. But readers, the difference between last week and this week has me in a flurry of excitement. Finally, finally, the snow is melting in our backyard.
Cue the visuals. This was our backyard last week.
Here it is this week.
Is that not progress? Or, how about this?
And the back flower bed is—wait for it!—completely snow free.
There has been so much progress with melting snow that next week I should be able to start picking up all the sticks and branches that have fallen over the winter. Be still, my trembling heart.
I will admit that the progress has been slower in the front yard.
Still, progress has been made.
I can hear the snickers of those who live in places where Spring is in full bloom. But for this Mainer, the dream of Spring is becoming a reality. By the end of the month, the small patio table will be out, and Clif and I will raise our glasses to beautiful Spring.
Just you wait.

Here in Champlain Valley the snow is mostly gone. It was beautiful but its departure is also a relief. Our porch table is out, a bit of early season optimism…..
Our patio table will be out soon. I hope by Earth Day.
Aww this is looking good Laurie, a happy weekend to you all! 🤗💜🌞 xxx
I’m excited for you both
It will be all the better for the anticipation! 😎🌱🌞
This makes me smile. I know how good it feels to know that spring is on the way!
Enjoying your anticipation 🙂
Looking good! C’mon Spring!
Happy weekend to you both. 🙂
The yard is clearing. Hooray! Clif won’t be steadfastly measuring for much longer. Still, it’s not happening fast enough for me!
I know the feeling.
This Granite stater understands. 🙂 And, I went to my first plant sale today. Of course, they’re living in my garage, but I still have them. 🙂
Must be a great feeling to have them. Glad you understand my excitement.
I can really see why spring is such an exciting time for you..😀🌞
After a long, cold winter, many of us are bursting to get outside.
It must be lovely to see the snow thawing.
It certainly is!
I feel you joy!
We keep being given tantalizing days of sunshine followed by hideous grey wet windy ones – sending us right back into winter. My internal thermostat is in a right old muddle.
I know what you mean Laurie.
It’s happening! Here, too, and I am so ready!
Today in Maine we are having a jolly good snow storm. Onward, ho!
Yay for melting snow and warm temps! Our snow has been gone for a couple of weeks, but we’re still waiting for most spring blooms.
How exciting and that looks like so much progress that you may be raising those glasses by the middle of the month!😁
I hope so!
Hurray, hurray, lift those glasses and celebrate! Every day we see just a bit more bare ground, even after snow from the night before! Springs a’coming!
And today it snows. 😉 Never mind. It will be gone soon.
I am so pleased for you, Laurie and yes, what an amazing difference!
Snowing today. 😉
Of course, it would be!
And then there was April 8–snow coming down like mad. Patience, patience, patience.
Yes, yes! Same here. suddenly, it’s Spring. Though sometimes the cold and wind try to convince us otherwise.
It hasn’t been very warm in Maine, either. I’m worried that the heat will suddenly come crashing down on us.
