Coming out of Hibernation

Friday, April 5th, 2013 at 2:49 pm

Spring has finally arrived and it was quite a long winter here in Maine.  I spent most of that time hibernating in our living quarters and watching the world go by from my window perch.  But now the sun is out, temperatures are rising and I am enjoying hanging out on the patio in the sun!  I have noticed a lot is coming to life – flowers, trees getting ready to bloom and, of course, Tille is high energy – running around on the patio, digging holes in Amy’s garden (I am sure she will put a stop to this soon) and generally just getting into trouble.  She can have all the energy and vigor – I prefer waking up in a lazy fashion from the long, cold winter.  Here are some of the things we spied coming out of hibernation with us!
