Signs of spring

I got a nice surprise when I went outside today and saw these adorable flowers in the yard.

They sort of sprung up out of a pile of leaves and broken twigs that has been buried under a lot of snow all winter. I know we have bulbs planted throughout the yard but I haven’t seen any other blooms yet.

The dogs are happy. Every day they come up with a different toy that has been frozen all winter. And unfortunately for me and any neighbors who are home during the day, the squirrels are back to taunt Sadie.

And she is so ready.
